|On Saturday and Sunday I finally got round to grafting my apple trees.|
|My root stocks heeled in a pot ready to be grafted|
|My collection of Scion wood|
|First two done|
To do this I dipped the cut end and painted the wax over the join before dipping them in cold water to set the wax. I would have dipped the whole graft in if I had a jar that was deep enough but doing it in this way seems fine.
|Melted grafting wax|
|Grafted up and sealed waiting to go into the ground|
I've just healed these trees back into the pot for now and at the weekend I'll create a nursery bed for them to grow in for the first year or so.
Lets hope they all take or else I could be learning budding in the summer!
