|Ember Plum. Whip Tongue Graft at 43 days. 5.3.15|
I have not removed the wrapping yet. Probably could. I the growth is this advanced, I'm convinced the graft has fully merged and healed. Leaving the wrapping in place for strength. Remove at about 6 inches of growth. We are close to that.
All I read about the need to bud graft plums was wrong. I did 6 whip / tongue, using 3 varieties, and all took. This is good. Many of the bud grafts need more than 1/2 year to start growing. The whip / tongue grafts are growing fast, a few weeks after grafting.
