Do you also use grafting compound over the saran wrap? Or just the
wrap? What about sun on the graft, I thought that was bad - do you
shade the grafts?
> To seal and support the new grafts I use what I think is commercial
> Saran wrap. The reason I say, "I think" is that my supply came from
> the trash of a school kitchen, a roll on a 3" core.
> Once only (this year) apparently a bird unwrapped a graft so wrapped,
> and it dried out and died.
> This wrapping is strong enough to support, soft and stretchy enough
> to allow growth. Sun degrades it in a year and it falls off.
