Tom,

Not meaning to sound cocky, but some Professors just repeat the same lecture from
year to year without reading current research.

It is my understanding that research was done in Boston area (cold, dry) and it
made no difference.    And it cool wet areas it enourages fungal growth.

I can't remember the name of the Pruning fellow.  He had a Swedish or Finnish name
and used to write in Fine Gardening.   Either he was involved in the research or
he read it and referred to it.  Some other members will know his name.

I think success in grafted is very dependent on match the cambium layers, tying
union tightly, state of development of rootstock (bud swell) and scion (dormant)
at time of grafting, and aftercare.
