The rootstock is a small tree that we cut off, leaving a bare trunk (with a diameter of up to 30 cm). We perform budding when the bark of the trees easily peels away from the wood (in April and May).

The scions should be dormant, stored over the winter, but you can get them shortly before grafting if necessary. They should have a diameter of 2.5 to 3.5 cm and a maximum of three buds.

We score the bark at two points on the rootstock so that the scion can be inserted between the bark and the wood. If successful, we wrap the junction with foil and then protect it with garden wax.

Good luck!
