Be patient the year you do the graft, AND the next year.  Scions can be slow 
to show growth the spring they are grafted, but also may not really take off 
until the next spring.  Some of mine which grew less than 1" per bud last 
year (and which I nearly pruned off to take to a grafting class as demos of 
poor grafts) have put on a lot of new growth this season already.

Also, when did someone last post a reminder to water rootstocks with new 
grafts?  We were short on rainfall here until we got 1" & 2" some places, 
and then plants doubled in size almost overnight.

tc, sWI z4-5, just add water
