Harvest cuttings in the autumn, after leaf fall. You can buy them from reputable growers. Carefully observe the rules of preparation and storage of the future of the Scion.
• Take them only from healthy plants. Good shoots at the age of year from the top or middle of the crown.
• Cuttings are harvested not less than 40 cm in length. Growth buds on them should be well developed.
• Keep shoots on the ground and covered with soil, or in the basement under wet sand.
Put a stock one day before the inoculation of the trees in the heat. Some gardeners soak them in water. Cut the cuttings, so each were 3-4 buds. Now choose the method of grafting trees.
Private trees depending on their type:
• topolyovka. On the stem and branches of the rootstock make equal slanting cuts-the"reeds" of about 3 cm and Attach them to a fight. This grafting method is often used for cherries.
• In splitting. Laminate garden knife rootstock from the end on the center depth of about 5 cm from the Bottom of the cutting, make a few random cuts. The resulting wedge should match the size of the splitting on the branch. One slice should be near the kidneys. Insert the wedge into the split, to the bark of the rootstock and Scion match. So it is possible to instill any culture.
• For the crust. Along the branch cut the bark, making a strip about 4 cm Take the bark to the side and insert the cut stalk. Oblique cut of the Scion should be on the wood. Strongly press in the crust. So it is recommended to vaccinate plum, apricot and cherry plums.
