bud grafting conifers

I am considering doing a T bud graft on two different plants. I wondered if anyone has been successful doing this when the plants are growing and the weather warmed up.

I did some grafting this past winter and 1/2 took. However I am trying to create new branches and want to take a bud from the tree and T graft onto the trunk. One is a scotch pine and the other Altas Cedar Glaca.

Let me hear experiences.

RE: bud grafting conifers

there is a conifer forum.. where grafting has been covered rather thoroughly since about january.. you will have to search down thru the pages quite a bit ...

grafting is timed for when the roots of the plant become active.. which is usually 6 to 10 weeks BEFORE they break bud ... [and your words.. 'when the plants are growing' .. make me think yours have ...

i have never heard of doing it.. to create new branches.. and i dont know about doing it on large trees .. as most grafting is been done on 2 or 3 year old understock

regardless .. give it a go ... what do you have to lose besides a piece of scion ...

good luck
