nurse grafting advice wanted
I am writing a handbook to explain grafting and budding to the amateur gardener. I have never carried out nurse-grafting, but would like to cover the subject. In the past, I have rind grafted pear scions onto Loquat rootstock and it has worked. That genetic compatibility plus the large seeds and fast germination of the Loquat, suggest to me that it may be a potentially good nurse root for pears apples quince etc until the scions have had time to produce their own roots. Has anyone tried it, or hold a view on the subject?
