Re peaches. I fid them very difficult to graft and those who I know do it
successfully wit until the weather is much warmer than when I graft apples,
pears, plums, pluots, etc.

Sherwin asks, " does the Parafilm have any advantage over other grafting
tapes because it allows air to reach the graft union?"

Dunno, I'm a tree farmer not a scientist, not even an amateur one. I've
always used vinyl tape or sometimes rubber to join scion to mother wood.
Pears and apples take so consistently that any advantage would be minor.

I'd be interested in a comparison of materials for splice grafts of peaches
though. My percentage of takes on peaches and nects swing wildly year to
year for reasons this non-scientist is unable to explain.
