How to wrap a graft?

Have you tools ready and cut a piece of tape at least 70cm long so you are ready to wrap the graft. Cut your root stock at an angle that is enough to allow a good connection and support the cut the same angle on your grafting piece. Start the wrap just below the rootstock cut so that the tape is locked and doesnt move with a 5cm piece hanging free (to tie it off). now place your graft piece onto the root stock and wrap 3 times at spaced intervals, keep the pressure on the tape and you can now move the graft piece to align the cuts so the cambiums line up, the tape should hold them together. Once you are happy that they are ok you can continue your wrapping making sure you cover all the cuts areas on both pieces then tie off the ends. You can cover the graft up with a freezer bag or similar to maintain good humidity, I also use a tape similar to glad wrap to make sure I have a good seal on the cut. If you have done it right you will start to get leaf growth in around 3 weeks, remove the bag if you used it and then just leave the graft to heal and the tape can stay on for added security.

In all these methods you need to use newly opened/opening flowers as your donors and female receptors even in “selfing” as it gives you a better chance of success and do not give up, once you find the premium time to pollinate you can get pods on your plants regularly but do not over do it as it will drain the plant of energy. Pods are reasonably quick growing and need to be of a reasonable size before winter to survive, too many on the one plant can mean none survive. At the start of spring you can put stockings or similar over the pods so that you do not loose any seeds when they open up, open weave is better as it will not hold water which can cause rot problems. Then it is simply a matter of planting your successful crosses out and waiting to see if you have created a new variety.
