Thank you for this article. Can you tell me if you do the same for plums and if so, what rootstock should I use (and where would I get it from)?

Plums, cherries and apples can all be grafted together.

Apples and cherries is a surprise. I've also seen pears grafted onto hawthorn...

I retract the statement, tbh. I used this link http://homeguides.sfgate.com/compatible-fruit-tree-grafting-62200.html

And even I know apples aren't Prunus. Today, I is being an idiot.

They're all Rosaceae so probably possible with intermediate grafts if you wanted to get really tricksy

I'm told that not all grafting tapes are equal: do we have any recommendations?

The rootstock for plums is st julian, available on ebay. Window for grafting ends march. Same grafting techniques can be used.

Some e-bay rootstocks I've seen have been on the thin side for successful grafting.

I have a plum tree in my garden which has been growing vigorously, but entirely fails to produce any fruit.
I was planning to cut it back hard and graft some things onto it.

Any thoughts?
When would be best to cut it down?

Summer is the best time to prune plums (silver leaf) but no idea on grafting
