GRAFTING TIPS

Through my experience I have learned from my failures. I am posting some common failures so  you don't repeat them.

1. Start grafting too early before the bark peels.

2 Grafting when a cold front approaches.  You achieve better success when it is warm and the tree is vigorously growing.  Growth is a function of temperature an when it cools off growth slows.

3. Don't freeze scion wood.

4. Don't put a soaking wet towel with your scion wood.  It will mold.  Damp only.

5. Don't seal your scion wood in a vacuum sealed bag.  The natural gasses released  will cause it to  swell up like a balloon

6. Don't repeated take wood from the refrigerator to graft, place it back in the refrigerator several times.  the temperature changes damage the scion wood.  Store in a cooler with ice while grafting.

Reserve your scionwood now by emailing me at admin@pecanworld.com . Price is $2 per stick plus shipping.
