Grafting Services?

Posted by Bob_In_Colorado 5 (My Page) on

I have some fruit trees (cherry and pear), that I'd like to graft branches of it's pollinator onto so in essence I have true self fertile trees.

One is a bing cherry and the other is a black tartarian. The others are a couple varieties of Asian pear.

Anyone have the skill or know someone who can do this? I'd compensate of course.

RE: Grafting Services?

The problem you have with grafting onto large trees is that the plant will prefer to feed the established stuff, not your newly introduced graft. Those 3-in-one trees are done as seedlings.

But its worth a try, anyway. Grafting isn't rocket science, there are plenty of sources of how to to this out there on the web. You'd really have to goof up to do any damage.
