[NAFEX] Grafting prunus (as opposed to budding)

Jerry,

Question on the aluminum foil.  Do you know how high temps have to get to be adverse to callusing?  If I remember right the Nafex handbook said something about temps above 90 degrees can cause graft failures.  So would the grafts reach those temperatures in the springtime without shade?

  Hello Tom,

  I've successfully grafted plums and cherries in the spring after active growth has begun, when the bark is well into the slip. I've used both the whip & tongue and bark graft. Wrap the entire graft with Parafilm and if in full sun a loose wrap of foil to reflect the sun's rays.

  A problem with cherries is they break bud in the frig.at temps same as early spring. Maybe 45 degrees is too warm. Store the scion wood very cold, just above freezing.   

  Jerry
