If you have ever seen natural grafts, where roots or shoots intertwined 
and grew together, it's less of a stretch to figure how someone might 
have seen that and tried artificial grafting.

A researcher friend says grafting mention goes as far back as the 
ancient Greeks.
Before that the records are fewer, but I bet older cultures knew about 
it.  What
amazes me is how anyone EVER figured it out!  It doesn't take much 
observation &
logic to learn that some cuttings root easily, but deciding to try 
grafting is a
bigger stretch.  Wow.
