Not really a stretch...  Two branches cross, and a natural graft occurs.

People were much more in tune with nature then.  Observation was the  
primary tool.

In the writings of Cato he mentioned using willow bark for wrapping  
grafts.  Willow has a very high content of the hormone that causes plants  
to callous and heal.  A perfect wrap for a graft, when that is all you  

Observatins was the key.
