Grapes don't graft like other fruits - graft them in the spring and they
will likely bleed out the graft.  Best method I know is to graft a dormant
one bud scion to a green shoot.  If you want the whole story, you can either
1).contact me directly,2).  wait until my book comes out in the fall, or 3).
join GrapesRUs, also on Yahoogroups and look in the archives - I've posted
the method at least twice there.
