Apologies if this question has been asked before but ive searched and cant find it.Im currently trying to graft ornamental blue spruce hoopsii scion to picea abies rootstock using a side graft.I understand that the rootstock plant must not be beheaded low down during this process otherwise it dies.So my question is this.How long after the scion has taken am i supposed to wait before beheading the rootstock?

are you sure you can put picea pungens on picea abies????

grating is constantly addressed in the conifer forum.. and i have never seen any of those dudes in the propagation forum .... though i care not where you post ...

look for anything by DAX ... and he will know the answer ...


RE: Grafting blue spruce question

Perhaps the moderator could repost my question in the conifer forum?Or do i have to do that? Im new to this site and i chose the most appropriate forum i could see.
