Shohin JBP in the making (approach grafting)

<< < (3/3)

MatsuBonsai:
Don't forget to seal both ends with a putty or similar.

I usually use green floral tape.  For Peter's joint graft he suggests parafilm grafting tape.

scottroxburgh:
I took the binding off to check last night, and it seems to be setting pretty well.

I'll rebind the area to prevent it from dislodging with this seasons growth.

I how long should I keep it bound for? Until the end of this season?

Adair M:
Scott,

Once it starts growing this season, you can weaken the part before the graft by taking little "nibbles" off each side of the branch.  This will force the scion part to draw more of it's energy requirements from the trunk.
