OK Folks, Buddy tape is here (perforated too). Manufacturer raised the prices in 2017 and made rolls 50% bigger too.

Cost for 1 tape - $24, add shipping costs below:  (Note folks are retailing on Amazon and AM Lenord north of $40/roll)
Shipping costs - 1 Roll - $3.25
Shipping costs - 2 Rolls - $4.25
Shipping Costs - 3 or more rolls - $10.5 (Priority Mail) 4 plus rolls gets over 1 lb and USPS has raised their rates dramatically.
If you want Priority Mail for up to 2 rolls max - $7.5

Will ship with USPS First Class Mail.

Note: Orders are first come first serve, I ordered extra but those who send payments will be refunded if payments on orders in front of you result in running out of tape. So dont wait.

Send Payments via PayPal as "Friends and Family" Option to infofiles@gmail.com, please indicate the following:
1. Your Name and Forum Name
2. Your mailing address
3. Your email address
4. Your choice of Perforated or Non Perforated and quantity of each.

Note: This is a Non-Profit Effort on my part to help fellow gardener friends because I enjoy helping others. All I ask in return is if I have request for some budwood and you happen to have it, please share in kind.

I find perforated a little wasted if I wrap lots of scions when I have to start new sections to continue where the precious one left off.

Perforated breaks in small strips, makes it easier to work with. Non perforated could be more waste but come handy on bigger wood.

I would recommend one of each. Remember the size stretches 10 times if you know how to do it.

I have totally changed my opinion on Buddy Tape.. Its the best! I abandoned my huge roll of Parafilm and now rely solely on Buddy Tape.  It stretches way better, is much more durable in the sunlight, and is just better all around..

Also note that if you use buddy tape, you don't need you don't use rubber band or any other tying tape.

A tip, for tightly tying scion to rootstock, simply fold the strip along its length and try stretching it, its strong, very strong for tying.

Behl, how will it take before you receive these rolls? Will they be available in a week?

That's funny!  Because now I like to use both paraflim and buddy tape!  It just depends on the situation.

the only thing I can say bad about buddy tape...is that it doesn't biodegrade like parafilm...I find it's necessary to pick the tape off of the scion after the graft heals.

That's fine

I might get one perforated. Put me down tentatively please. Plus when people pay you they should make the paypal payment under payment to family and friends. This way the buyer pays the paypal fee of about 3% instead of Mr Behlgarden

Hi Zands, thanks form posting. Actually family and friends is no fee to anyone. But if someone says goods and services then it gets charged 3% plus I look like a merchant
