I'm guessing the Parafilm 'grafting tape' must be perforated.
I'm in a laboratory setting, so I have ready access to the original
Parafilm-M formulation. We buy it by the case in the 2"x 250 ft
rolls, so when I finish off a roll - it takes years - I just get one
from central supply and pay the business manager.
I usually cut pieces about 3/4 inch wide by six inches in length in
advance; one strip will do most apple/pear grafts, but I may use 2 or
3 pieces on a big pecan/hickory/walnut graft.
