  I use dormant scions all summer long in any normal graft type you wish. As 
long as the are dormant in the fridge graft to living stock. As a matter of 
fact, I have not started to graft as yet because in Michigan at my place the 
buds are breaking green. I am waiting for small leaves to show.

I grafted few of my fruit trees and waiting to see whether they were taken. 
I have the rest of the dormant budsticks in the refrigerator. I want to use 
them if any of those grafts are not taken. What is the best way to do it 
after the dormant period? As I understand I can't do T-budding, it
needs current year's growth. I think Chip budding is possible. I read 
somewhere I can do T-budding in June for Peach.

How long I can keep these budsticks?
When is the right time to do?
Which is the right method for grafting with dormant sticks at that time?

I did on apple, pears, peach, apricot and plums (Japanese and european)
