I graft then up pot, or up pot then graft, within a few days.
Graft doesnít need much water.
Rootstock should have enough new root hairs in a week, so there is no stress to the rootstock.

You could wait a few days to graft when temperature lowered .
Graft doesnt need sun to heal so put pot under shade.

My favorite grafting is inlay bark graft with thin scion, using a dull blade.
Itís easy to do a veneer cut on the scion with a dull blade, so it wonít cut into the wood.
A sharp blade is only necessary on some types of grafting.

Put crushed garlic in a net bag.
Hang bag on a pole.
Put bag next to the swarm.

Bees should all left in an hour.

I donít know of any video.

Inlay graft refers to bark removal.
Here is my way.

I sawed into the wood to make it easy to cut the thick rootstock later.
Donít saw into the wood for summer grafting.

There is a major problem with sap oozing out at cut end of the rootstock during hot weather.
You could avoid this problem by using any grafting methods that do not have a cut into the wood of the rootstock.

Block the sun from scion to keep scion cool.

Whats the temperature today where you are?


For summer grafting avoid bark and cleft grafting due to sap bleeding.
Try inlay side grafting and protect scion with white lunch bag.
You should get 90% take.

You could fill the pot full to support the plant.
It wonít kill that banana plant.

Pest ate the bark.

Last May I had a Chaffey fruit that was sweet but very sour, with a hint of soursop unique flavor.
Still need more time to see if more late fruits get that flavor.

There is a new cherimoya called sweet n sour, aka Milky.
Itís suppose to taste similar to soursop.

These 2 are much easier to grow than soursop.

Graft union on my soursop to cherimoya rootstock looks terrible.
Graft union on cherimoya to soursop rootstock looks perfect.

Growing cherimoya is simple.
Selecting a good one is difficult.
You should grow all then decide which ones to keep.

AP2 is an atemoya.
Taste and texture are different to cherimoya.
Itís is African Pride 2, a seedling of AP.
Itís bigger.

No need to intervene.
Guava can go through infestation without any issue.

Ladybugs will eat and lay many eggs.
Pest free in a few weeks.

Nitrogen is inverse of mango fruit quality.
More N gives lower quality fruit.

Only nitrogen in the form of ammonia gas off.
The rest of nutrients are still there.

No amount of worms can create nor destroy any nutrients.

Keep weak ones in bag longer until they recover.

I want to pick a pod from the flamboyant tree.
They let visitors pick fruits of the trees?

To trim is to cut branches.
New shoots grow out in a week or more, depending on temperatures.
New shoots have flowers.

People trim by cutting back branches and strip the leaves.
I cut back very short so donít have any leaves to strip.

This is why you can control flowering by when you cut the branches.
My atemoya trees still have fruits today.

You should grow 4 or more trees.
Trim 2 trees in spring to get early fruits.
Trim 2 trees in summer to get late fruits.

Only Milky on your list is a cherimoya.

Trim Cherimoya in March and set fruits in May.
Mature in Oct.
Trim later to set fruits later.

Trim atemoya in April to set fruits in late May or late June, depend on weather.
Mature in late Oct to spring, depend on variety.
Trim in August and eat fruit in May.

You can control when to get mature fruits.

Root hairs absorb water.
They are gone when potting media is removed.

Your humidity is extremely low.
Roots die fast when exposed.

Bag tree asap.

I would use a big clear plastic bag to cover the weak tree.
Keep tree away from sun.
Remove bag slowly after tree recovers.

June plum should recover so relax.

Treat it as 1 tree and trim it the way you like.

Observe to see when the flowers are at male and female stages.
Some cherimoya in my yard have male in the afternoon and female in the morning.
For these I collect pollens in the afternoon and pollinate in the morning.
