Too late for approach graft on JBP?
« on: July 14, 2011, 04:25 PM »
I need to perform an approach graft on a Japanese black pine.  Would I better off waiting until next year to do the work, or can the graft, if done in mid July stand, a good chance of taking?  It's halfway through the growing season here in GA, but I've got solid 3 months left.  My first attempt failed and I didn't realize that until this week.  Thoughts?

I think I have done such a graft on a P. sylvestris last year at the same date and it seems to have worked.
I have done one today on a JRP.

Thanks, Alain.  I may give it a go later this week, if time permits.

There is an excellent article in the current issue of the ABS journal (2011 Volume 2) that covers grafting and various grafting techniques.  It's worth a read for anyone intrested in the subject.
