Ya but your just trading one plant for another, why not keep both, why cut
off the mother plant?

Author Haleene Williams (8 months)
Thank you so much for your information. I have been on a quest to grow
some avocado trees. I love them, and recently found out my dads neighbor
had two very large ones that he cut down (he said the taste better then any
he had before), so now I know they can grow well here.
What should you graft an Avocado tree to, and does it matter if it is a
fruit tree or not? Also why not use the stretch tape to tape the graft?

The wrapping is done to retain moisture. You can leave some portions open
if your graft is in a very moist environment like in a mist house or in a
very tropical climate.

I have about 20 seedlings I'd like to graft. Thing is they're already about
2 years in pots and about 3-5 feet tall. I'm thinking they need to go in
the ground and I'm not sure if I should plant them and then do the
grafting. Also the soil in some of the pots is low. I'm considering doing
the veneer graft since the trunks on the these plants is already thicker
than most scions available. Any advise would be much appreciated.

Author fairchildgarden (3 years)
@oldschoolswap You want one main trunk for you mango, so remove the weaker
shoots and try to keep on main shoot. Also, check out our video on pruning
young mangos because your tree will be ready to get pruned soon.

Author fairchildgarden (1 year)
Trees are never too old to graft, but you might do better if you cut back
your tree and then graft onto the smaller branches that sprout when you cut
it back. This process is known as top-working and is often used to change a
old cultivar to a new one.

Author DibblePhotography (1 year)
I have a few trees that are more mature - about 3 yrs to 7 yrs old. Are
these too old to graft?

Author fairchildgarden (3 years)
@agriperma You can keep the scions for about two to three days and still
have good success. Wrap them totally in the parafilm to keep them from
drying out. They should not be subjected to any extreme temperature
changes. Good luck!

May I ask if the Scion is a sprout(for lack of proper terminology) that is
an immature stem in which the end of the branch will fruit into a mango? My
neighbor has a beautiful fruiting Mango Tree which I am tending to while
away, & I noticed the look of a very immature sprout which visually you can
tell will be a mango in the making. If so, I may have access to a scion.
ALSO, I don't have a parafilm "M" wrap of any kind, is there something else
I can use to retain the moisture? Thank you!

Author fairchildgarden (2 years)
You can only do mangos to mangos and avocados to avocados, etc. You can do
different cultivars, but not different species.

Author fairchildgarden (2 years)
The purpose of grafting is to maintain a really good type of mango. If you
grow them from seed, the tree will take longer to bear and it will not be
the same as the mother plant. Grafting allows you to clone your tree and
keep superior cultivars.

I am curious about the same. I am tempted to graft 2 plants that are in the
same family but clearly different all together. I am also interested in
grafting different types of coffee trees. I have several Cofea Arabicas and
am interested in grafting catora and robusta to established Arabica to see
what we get.

Author fairchildgarden (3 years)
@oldschoolswap You did not miss your opportunity. You can graft at many
different stages, including when the tree has begun to form wood.

Author fairchildgarden (2 years)
You can graft them in the container or in the ground but just make sure the
roots are in good shape and not wrapping around the container. You don't
want to graft onto a plant that has a poor root system. The veneer graft
should work well and you could even put more than one graft onto each
plant. If you repot them or put them in the ground, make sure to plant them
at the proper level.

Great job. We hope it takes!

Author fairchildgarden (2 years)
Make sure the seed is from a mature mango and remove the husk of the seed
before you plant it. Plant the seed in a well draining soil mix on its side
and keep it moist, but not too wet. It should germinate for you in about
4-6 weeks.

Author fairchildgarden (3 years)
@bernardint The rootstock should be about the width of a pencil or just a
bit smaller. In South Florida, it is best to graft avocados in the winter.

Thanks it's a great help, alot more simple than I was thinking. I'm
wondering also about one of the mango trees I have which is flourishing in
the ground, about 3 feet tall. It has branched out alot. It's actually hard
to distinguish the main trunk because it has 4 or 5 trunks coming out at
the bottom. One is tallest, I guess that's the main trunk, but the others
are just as fat at the bottom and almost just as tall. From what I
understand a grafted tree should have one trunk. (Cont...)

By far the best grafting video on the Internet, Congrats! I am about to
perform my first graft and had a couple of questions before I start slicing
and dicing... First, I noticed you mentioned on the lower comments that the
ideal rootstock age is about a pencil or smaller. I just grew my mango from
ceed and is a bit thicker at this point, if not mistaken. It's starting to
turn slight brown "wood" at the base (3 months old). Did I miss my
opportunity? I want to perform a veneer graft and was l

I think it is fully enclosed to aid in moisture retention. The graft is
most likely similar to a wound. The new growth will find it's way out and
push through.

Author agriperma (3 years)
Very informative, and clear. I have a question regarding the parafilm M,
how long can scions stay viable using that stuff? for example, I intend to
get some scions, and it may be 2 days or so, before I can graft them, will
they hold up? do I wrap the whole scion cutting with Parafilm M?

Author pfdad1 (1 year)
Thank you for your videos they are extremely instructional I have two
questions One; will the buds be able to push through the parafilm when they
start to push open? Two; can I graft small seedlings that are already in
the ground, and provide partial shade for them until the grafts heal?
They're planted right where I want them so I do not plan to move them.
