Grafting Flowering Cherry Tree

mark81jMay 30, 2010

My flowering cherry tree's graft section (scoin) died last year, and all i'm left with is the rootstock.. which is still quite healthy.

I was going to remove the tree, but somebody told me to re graft. so i'm going to attempt this. Would any type of flowering ornamental cherry attachment slip be suitable?, and is the success rate good?

Any help would be great.

Thanks Mark

Since you already have a healthy rootstock adapted to your location, I don't see any reason why grafting would not work. The only problem might be disparity in size between rootstock and scion wood. A cleft graft with more than one scion should solve this problem and increase your chances of success, but I'd certainly seek local advice about timing and compatabilty.
