Title: Genuine Buddy Tape for Grafting - Group Order Open - 2019 (OPEN)
Post by: behlgarden on May 09, 2013, 09:12:44 PM
OK Folks, Buddy tape is here. Manufacturer raised the prices again in 2019.

tapes are being sold on Amazon and eBay for over $50/roll and we sold last year for $24/ea I believe. This time around cost could be $25, not sure. plus shipping $5. If you order more than one tape, shipping would be flat $8 Priority Mail.

I want to get commitment from all you folks who are interested so I can place a sizable order to bring the cost or 2019 increase down to close to price as last year. Tapes would be from fresh 2019 batch, and possibly available towards mid March.

Will ship with USPS First Class Mail, will give you tracking number. If you are worried about lost mail, the pay Priority Mail Shipping.

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.

***NO INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING***

Yes!  I'm glad to hear you're doing this again!

How and when to pay?

Title: Re: Genuine Buddy Tape for Grafting - Group Order Open
Post by: fyliu on May 10, 2013, 06:09:43 PM
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.
Title: Re: Genuine Buddy Tape for Grafting - Group Order Open
Post by: behlgarden on May 10, 2013, 06:13:23 PM
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.

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
Title: Re: Genuine Buddy Tape for Grafting - Group Order Open
Post by: behlgarden on May 11, 2013, 02:04:13 PM
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

Zero fee if taken from your bank account. But 2.9% if taken from credit or debit card. I was unaware of this distinction until now

Post by: behlgarden on May 16, 2013, 01:20:39 PM
OK Folks, Buddy tape is here and I ordered a bit more to cover late comers. Price would be $18/tape plus $2.75/shipping per tape, plus $1 for tracking confirmation (applies once).

I want to send with tracking. Hope you all understand. here is the deal

1. Cost for 1 tape - $20 plus $3 for shipping.
2. Cost for 2 tapes - $39 + $4 = $43



Going forward, I will ship with USPS tracking and no signature confirmation. Please understand that if USPS loses the package I dont want to be responsible. If you are ok on taking that responsibility, it will save you $2.7, OR you can pay $5.9 as shipping costs and get it priority mail which seldom has issues of getting lost.

Thanks
If anyone wants priority mail, send $18/tape and $5.5 for shipping.

Send paypal payments to infofiles@gmail.com, "Goods and Services option". Please clearly specify your name and address, and your forum ID/alias for identification. Tape will be available to ship starting tomorrow.

Thanks
Title: Re: Genuine Buddy Tape for Grafting - Group Order Open
Post by: behlgarden on May 19, 2013, 05:59:58 PM
ok, those who paid got their shipments ready. those who wish to get their tapes into shipment tomorrow as well, please send money ASAP. otherwise next chance I will get to ship out would be Wednesday.  Thanks

I have not received payments (I cant confirm) from the following members who intended on getting one, if you sent payment, please PM me again or check your Paypal:
 
Zands
Pan Dulce
murahilin

Anyone else want to buy please do place your order. I have enough for now, but you never know. I got JF and Cuban007 in line as well and they are picking up.

Let me know if I miss anyone.

Thanks

[/quote]

Adam, confirming that manufacturer says that Buddy Tape biodegrades in 5-6 months. They also don't recommend using any rubber band Or other forms of tying the union. this would eliminate the need to remove the tape and allow tape to biodegrade naturally in 5-6 months.
Title: Re: Genuine Buddy Tape for Grafting - Group Order Open
Post by: fyliu on May 20, 2013, 12:32:09 PM
Not sure about Florida weather but California sun degrades the tape nicely. Adan's grafted plant from a year ago is just breaking the tape now.

I also use parafilm+budding tape half the time when tying thicker harder wood that need to be forced together. I'll try the double layer method next time.
Title: Re: Genuine Buddy Tape for Grafting - Group Order Open
Post by: behlgarden on May 20, 2013, 12:41:51 PM
double layer method works very well. I was quite impressed with how strong tie it creates. again, stronger the tie means once scion is heeled you remove the tie to prevent girdling.

Post by: behlgarden on May 22, 2013, 12:55:53 PM
everyone, note that I changed shipping. Signature confirmation is too expensive, I charged $1.9 but it costed me $2.7 so I took hit on all shipping so far.

Just about all ebay stuff I get via USPS is delivery confirmation only. No signature confirmation. The sellers feel protected enough with just delivery confirmation

lajolla, it's difficult to figure out what you added if you put your question inside someone else's quotes. You should have put it at the end, outside all the quotes. I know a couple others do this in the forum, but it doesn't help in getting their questions answered this way.

Now to answer your question, add to cart and fill out the form with your address and then choose the shipping option to find out the final price.

FYI -  I have been getting a lot of messages over Buddy tape and I have been tell them to wait until Spring. Well, I can do another group order if I can see who is interested. Last time not many responded before the small order I did and then I got flood of requests and it was too late.

So, those who are interested, please PM me
1. Quantity needd
2. Preference of Perforated or Non Perforated.
3. Your forum name, and your email address.

If I have sufficient folks interested, we can make it happen at wholesale prices.  As of now, I dont have latest pricing, but if we go by what we paid last year, assume it would be about the same.

Post by: behlgarden on April 16, 2018, 11:39:23 AM
Do you cover scions wrapped with buddy tape, as in plastic bag and or paper bag?

I exclusively use buddy tape for wrapping scions and even tying the scion to union, if scion is thick then I use nursery tape to tie the union. 99% of my grafts do not involve any rubberband or nursery take as I dont graft scions that are thicker than 3/8". Never used plastic or paper bag as in CA we have very low humidity. Buddy tape seals in the moisture, even if the branch that you grafted onto dies your scion stays green for a while. I have successfully rescued failed grafts where scion was still green and moved it to another location and it took.

Thank you all for making the group order successful. Barring one shipment that apparently shows delivered but not received by fellow gardener, everyone got their packages. In the future will keep in mind to allow Priority Mail shipments if there is any chance of recovering insurance from USPS, even then if their tracking shows delivered, there isnt much you can do to file a claim.

OK Folks, Buddy tape is here Manufacturer raised the prices again in 2019.

tapes are being sold on Amazon and eBay for over $50/roll and we sold last year for $24/ea I believe. This time around cost could be $25, not sure. plus shipping $5. If you order more than one tape, shipping would be flat $8 Priority Mail.

I want to get commitment from all you folks who are interested so I can place a sizable order to bring the cost or 2019 increase down to close to price as last year. Tapes would be from fresh 2019 batch, and possibly available towards mid Feb.

Will ship with USPS First Class Mail, will give you tracking number. If you are worried about lost mail, the pay Priority Mail Shipping.

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.

No concerns, I am just curious if this is the exact same ones . I was hoping to get them earlier than march to start a project. if it is the same, I don't have a problem ordering one for $8 more while I wait.

It's same to what? It's buddy tape by Aglis, same as last year, reason it will be March is due to fresh lot. Older lots dont have same elasticity duebtonaging.

I will let others chime in, but in my opinion there is no comparison. Buddy tape is it for grafting.

I have only used buddy tape because I heard so many great reports. I have really enjoyed using it year after year so I continue to stick with it. It's worked well for me with mango, jaboticaba, white sapote, canistel/ross sapote, surinam cherry, pitangatuba, pretty much all eugenia, plinia, etc.

Are the buddy tape better in quality than parafilm?

I recently grafted 30 sticks on a peach tree of 4 varieties including apricot to extend the harvest.  Started off with parafilm, switched to buddy tape after a few grafts.

Parafilm is crap compared to BT.  BT is stickier, stretches much better, easier to control, and doesn't tend to dry up and break or come unraveled on the graft after a while.

Mighty nice of Behl to offer this service for ya'll.

From my experience, I wrap union with buddy tape, not freen take or rubber bands unless scionif thicker than 3/8". Parafilm always would split vertically and cause failure in grafts. Since I switched to BT, no problems.

We should all thank to Adam for introducing BT to the group
