What can you tell me about Grafting?
« on: May 01, 2017, 02:17:00 PM »

Hey All,

I've been getting my hands properly dirty for about 3 years now. I'm always hungry for useful information in my ongoing effort to become a more efficient and well rounded organic gardener. I've recently stumbled across a few vids on youtube of people practising various grafting techniques. The concept is fascinating to me and is something I'd definitely like to experiment with. If you could take some time to help answer some of these questions or provide me with any other advantageous material it would be very much appreciated! :D

1) What are some safe, resistant, sustainable and suitable root stocks for increasing yields and longevity (particularly in a subtropical climate)?

2) How do I know if my root stock will be compatible with my desired scion/s?

3) Can I graft multiple varieties of edibles to a single root stock?

4) Is there a limit to the number of scions I can graft to a single root stock?

5) Can I do many grafts on a single root stock at once or should I do it periodically to reduce stress and target healing?

6) Does the age of the plants come into play when grafting?

7) What is the best time of year to graft (southern hemisphere)?

8) Do I need to humidify and shade my fresh grafts? If so, for how long and will I need to reintroduce them to sunlight gradually overtime?

9) How do I best prepare my root stock and scion prior to grafting?

10) What techniques/materials can be used to more effectively attach the scion to the root stock?

11) What methods will improve the likelihood of the scion taking to the root stock?

12) What are some major advantages and disadvantages of grafting?

13) Are the unnatural methods surrounding grafting accepted in the wider organic gardening community?
