Last Sunday I walked around my plants looking for branches to use for scions. Here they are from before and after. Wish me luck....Houston had so much rain this week, so I took them inside by the window right now. Trying to stay away from moisture air. (These from seeds grow, for rootstock) 47 scions in total. I only hope to get 1/2 of that to take, since so much rain everyday.

How exciting. I do hope our grafts take for you. Did you use a named variety as your scion wood? I have quite a few seedlings and am looking forward doing more grafts.

I had good success with them taking BUT...then this spring quite a few of them rotted. I will try again but do you know how to prevent that from happening?

Ladylotus, thank you. Yes, I pick the ones with heavy bloom to use for scion wood. With name/color too.

I did great job last year, but the winter took most of them away. I wish I know how to prevent them from rot....

I still have many more big seedlings, but not ready for graft this year.

I am reporting the result on my grafting. I did total of 47 scions, after 2 weeks 44 took. I removed the plastics and couple more dry up. So only 42 now spout. Some are faster then other.

Joe, am I good enough to help you with your grafting? Free of labor....hehehe.

Lonnie, I got them from VN. A friend brought them all the way from Viet Nam just for me to use on grafting.

I sent you PM

Lonnie,
I got mine at Michael's (the craft store). They are sold for storing beads in and they come in many different sizes. I cut the ziplock part off and use.
