I have had very few failures when bark-grafting or chip budding paw paws.  I
always try to align the foreign buds in line and between two buds on the
rootstock.   I  bark graft onto a limb
if it is large enough to receive a scion.   Does everyone else use this
procedure or do you random place buds on any smooth part of the rootstock?   
I have in ground small trees for rootstock
that will try next spring  with buds misaligned to see it makes any
I use the same technique when budding and grafting chestnuts and shown in
'85th Annual Report' of Northern Nut Growers Association  dated Aug 1994 with
excellent results.
