Charlie, your plum thicket makes my mouth water!   My plum grafting luck  on 
to p. americana has been nearly a zero. For 4 years I have been trying both 
spring W&T grafting of dormant scions ( both bench and in the field) , and 
late august bud grafting.
So far I have only one that  has grafted successfully...bud graft of 
Alderman  on p. americana.     I have been working with pembina, alderman, 
and waneta.
On wild chokecherrry I have had fair succss experimenting with W&T graft of  
p. maritima, looks like this week I'll get the first blooms of that graft.
On apples - I just bench grafted 47 M26's to about 35 varieties for a 
friend's first orchard, and all but two are good, so my technique doesn't 
seem too bad, Any advice?  Thanks, Del
