How do you protect an new graft from wind desiccation in winter?  I recently
chip budded a peach and it seems to be healing in fine.  I took off all the
wrap, but was wondering what needs to be done to protect the chip bud (on
north side) this winter.  Some good information on your site Derry, but I
didn't see anything that addresses winter care of late summer bud/chip

specific information on different kinds of trees, with the temperatures etc
that are best?  Lots of books in my library, but none of them have
consistently good info on aftercare of grafts.  I'd like to see info
including setting out in a nursery, care in the nursery, digging and moving
to the orchard, etc.
