« on: December 12, 2021, 12:38:36 PM »
Hi all , I have 4= 25 year old multi trunked 3 or 4 trunks each cherimoya trees that I totally want to cut down and change over to 3 or 4varieties each. ( sorry I do not know how to do photos ) my question is would I be better off cutting them down now hoping for some new shoots to sprout over winter  then graft in spring??  or wait till early spring dormancy to cut down then wait for new growth and graft in summer??   BTW I do know how to graft I am just wondering when those of you that have done it before think/know when I will get the fastest most robust growth
