My first successful bark grafts. I grafted these in late Jan, this picture was taken in mid-march. I never labeled them,because I never thought they would actually take. But I think it's flavor king and burgundy

Your bark was slipping in January? I think I have to wait until May.

No it wasn't really slipping, I sliced down the bark about 1" from the top then gently force the diagonally cut scion behind the bark. Just like in one of the DWN youtube videos

Looking good! I top worked one of my peach trees that way. The grafts heal in completely in a few years.
