Tree grafting

Tree grafting is a pretty neat way to duplicating the same species of plant or producing something different while at the seem time-saving a few dollars. The very first time I was introduced to grafting a tree was many years ago when I worked as a landscape tech

It is was interesting to see how this method was carried out. Here in the Bahamas, we call this method tree mossing. In this article, we will be looking at how this is done as we enter the world of tree grafting.

What is grafting all about?

I am glad that you asked. Grafting is the process by which various methods are used to join different plant parts to grow as one I think that is pretty amazing. As a kid growing up I remembered

we grew these fruits in the neighborhood that was called sour orange, I was told that it was a mixture of an orange and a sour tree that produced this bittersweet fruit and to be honest the fruit tasted great. We will now be turning our attention to how to graft a tree.
