Clement, I am glad you posted these! Thanks for that. On your rootstock do you make the cut for the wedge of the scion or the back cut first? Thanks again for your time.

RE: Grafting 2

I start by the scion, and for the scion and the rootstock I start in first by back cut.
Thanks Dax, but I have a lot of news blades.

Thanks Clement. This is my first year with this craft/hobby.After getting grafted conifers the past few years its easy to see that some take great pride.I did my 1st grafts last night and was happy with the results so far. I would not be doing this without the people on this forum. Many great teachers here.

It's a video, not the top quality, but I think you see what you would.

Pleasure to see this. Now that i think of this, i use to bind upwards. Is there some special reason to bind from high to low? I always want to learn from master grafters.

I graft to 8-10-12 cm hight when it's a very dwarf plant,for a better air circulation, specialy when you mulch your bed.
However when it's a dwarf or a tree, I graft the lower possible.

Clement, enjoyable.

Jarpe: it would be difficult to hold the scion in place and wrap a bud strip. When you asked I immediately thought the only way to do it like you asked is to hold the plant in my lap and look straight down... but still, I'd have to start at the top. It's counter-intuitive in my own mind, yet everyone will develop their own style that works well for them. Maybe if I saw you on video and you wrap as well as anyone else... well then, it wouldn't matter.. would it?

Clement,great video! I could never figure why the flap hanging there drying up and dead and a scar on the scion. This method you are showing to me just makes sence! I did a few dozen grafts this way on sunday and it all felt right. Your timing was perfect for getting me started. Last year I got some grafted conifers that appeared to be done in the same way or close to it!
thanks!

The scion are so little, I used this system for the first time, and he look good.
