|Apple Graft at 2 months.|
Deer browsed one of the Asian pear trees, including a nicely growing graft. *#&$^%$ Deer.
The apple graft is Jonagold. The rootstock is a sucker that sprouted from roots of an apple tree that I cut down. That tree never bore and was susceptible to fireblight, and too vigorous. I thought it was dead, but now a few years later there are sprouts from the rootstock. So I grafted a couple. I removed the wrap today. It's not clear when to remove. Too late and the wrap girdles the tree. Too early and it might not be healed.
This was growing nicely so I thought it might be healed. Lucky guess, it is. Nicely healed whip and tongue graft. Happy.
This is much better than a cleft graft, which leaves exposed open wounds.
