|Whip/Tongue Grafted Ginkgo biloba. 2.27.16|
The rootstocks are Ginkgo trees that I started from seeds 3 years ago. They are all on containers.
The cambium layer seems very thin and delicate. The wood is harder to cut accurately, compared to apple and pear wood.
If the grafts don't take, I'm sure the rootstock trees will regrow from the buds below the graft. But I want them to take.
In case they need protection longer, compared to apples and pears, I wrapped the entire length of the scion. They are double-wrapped, first polyethylene grafting tape, then parafilm tape. Both tapes are 1/2 inch wide.
