[NAFEX] grafting questions

I have been doing some grafting for just a few years-tried it with no
luck at all many years ago, and finally took the class the Bob Purvis
offered a couple of years ago. I had pretty good luck the first couple
of years, although many didn't make it through their first winter, but
last year nothing made it through the summer.
I grafted about 20 trees on rootstock that I had ordered, with scions
both from friends, my own trees, and some from folks on this list. They
all had good growth at first, and the new growth was 9 inches to 18
inches, with most around a foot. About half of them were put in the
ground at that point, and half were left in the gallon sized pots that I
started them in. By mid-June, every one of them had died completely.
The ones in pots were on the north side of the house so were in shade
Any suggestions or ideas?
