grafted lodgepole pine

Post  peter keane on Mon Apr 25, 2011 7:40 pm

I don't happen to like the two-needle foliage of pinus contorta. So, I'm changing it to pinus parviflora:) I grafted six weeks ago. I'm amazed at how quickly the results are showing. My other pine graft projects aren't as quick as this (they were grafted earlier this winter). The five-needle pine in the first image is the donor plant..

So far so good. Are you using buddy tape (rice paper based tape)?

How are the graft unions in a few years down the road?

This is Buddy Tape from AM Leonard. There is no paper in the blend. in 2009, I visited with Boon and saw a contorta that he had grafted with five needle pine. The unions looked smooth. The grafts held up to wiring, too....

The buddy tape works:) The sphagnum is to provide humidity for the new shoots.
