What does grafting a fruit tree involve ?

As fruit trees do not grow true to type from seed and it is difficult to get cuttings to root consistantly, it is necessary to propogate them differently. Grafting involves taking a piece of wood from one tree and attaching it to a rootstock. For fruit trees grafting is traditionally done in late February and into March.

If you are trying to preserve a tree, in January collect a piece of last seasons new growth, ideally of pencil thinckness. The wood should then be placed in a plastic bag and kept cool, such as in the salad draw of the fridge.
