Fruit trees of the same genus but different varieties are compatible for grafting.
Bridge grafting is an option to help save trees with extensive bark damage inflicted by rabbits during the winter. Whip Grafting: Grafting is one of the oldest methods of plant propagation and is standard practice today for various types of fruit trees.

Download Russian version Pdf. Nurseries and orchards often use grafts to propagate plants. The grafted plant combines a "stock" and "scion", the first going to form the root system of the new plant and the second the foliage. The "scion", also known simply as the "graft", can be anything from a single bud, often called an "eye", to a one-year- old branchlet, sometimes known as a cion. Why fruit trees. For simplicity's sake, we'll limit ourselves to grafts for fruit trees.

The scion continues to grow as if it were on its own roots and produces fruit of its kind. Grafts are more successfully made between varieties of the same species or.
Basic Grafting Techniques
Budding is inserting a single bud from a desirable plant into an opening in the bark of a compatible rootstock to create an advantageous variety cultivar and rootstock combination. In fruit trees, T-budding or Chip budding are grafting techniques that use a single bud from the desired scion rather than scionwood with multiple buds. Budding can be used on many kinds of plants: apples, pears, peaches, and a large number of ornamentals.
Grafting is a method of asexual plant propagation that joins plant parts from different plants together so they will heal and grow as one plant. This technique is used to propagate plants that do not root well from cuttings, to utilize superior root systems, or to maintain clonal production. Nursery workers and fruit tree producers must know how to graft.
Graft , in horticulture , the joining together of plant parts by means of tissue regeneration. Grafting is the act of placing a portion of one plant bud or scion into or on a stem , root , or branch of another stock in such a way that a union will be formed and the partners will continue to grow. The part of the combination that provides the root is called the stock; the added piece is called the scion.
