as far as i can gather different techniques are suitable at different times of year...


So what type of tecnique/plants should we be grafting now?
Has anyone here tried grafting pear onto hawthorn? I'm told it can be done...

What else can graft onto what? I know apples to apples and plums to plums, but is there something a bit odd like peach onto cherry? I recall at least one other combination that surprised me.

cucumber onto pumpkin. not very odd, increases crop and reduces salt intolerance so extra feeding helps rather than hinders.

adding a second pumpkin plant to supplement the first for super giant specimen growing. sneaky but effective.

i will get back to you re fruit trees when i have done more reading.

UK parafilm: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Heathrow-Scientific-HD234526A-Moisture-Transparent/dp/B0061OXR6S/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1528067026&sr=8-6&keywords=parafilm

I'm sure it's not all on all, but I think many stone fruit can be squished together: https://www.cnet.com/news/beautiful-tree-grows-over-40-kinds-of-fruit/

It's a bit spendy still....
probably cheaper to buy through someone who already gets a discount for their lab supplies

For those who've never used parafilm before, remember that it stretches it to many times it's size, so "a dab'll do ya".
