ISO any types of budwood
« on: October 30, 2019, 04:49:27 PM »
I am going to be making my first attempt at micro grafting. I have several FD, poncirus, and other random citrus saplings to practice on and all I need is some budwood to get going. Does anyone have any I could purchase? I am not sure if this is the right time of year to ask or not but worth a shot. In wisconsin so no worries on regulations. Thanks!

Is now OK to graft? I understand that one should graft citrus in the spring. Or do you have a greenhouse?

Depends on what kind of grafting you want to do. Now is a good time for me (zone 9). Cleft and chip budding now and will force buds in Spring. If budding, wait till Spring and bark is slipping.

Micrografting is under a microscope, you can do you all year long because plants stay in a bioreactor.
But I guess because you don't even have budwood, you attempt to graft on small diameter rootstock, in that case you are late, PT entered dormancy.

Yes and I have active growing saplings right now in more of a greenhouse environment, so I believe I can do other grafts as well but i know typically micrografting is better for smaller younger seedlings.

I saw micrografting on youtube.  They were using rather newky sprouted seedlings as root stock.  You can sprout seeds any time.

Yes that is my goal! I have several small seedlings that around 2 months old that I would like to attempt.
