Where to buy buddy tape?
« on: April 06, 2016, 09:55:40 PM »
Anyone know the best place to buy buddy tape online? I ran out of buddy tape today while grafting and I had to use parafilm for the first time in a long while and I realized how much better buddy tape really is. I bought from Behl a few years back but I'm not sure if he is still selling it.

He is out right now, but should be back in the game sometime soon.  I had to order from http://www.groworganic.com/1-buddy-grafting-tape-approx-130.html the other day.  Price is decent...but the shipping is like $12 IIRC.  It came in 2-3 days though so all in all, pretty smooth.  I also saw it on ebay for a couple dollars cheaper but the shipping was like a week longer so I went with the one above.

:). Shipping time may be longer than usual (3 to 8 weeks), as the Hong Kong postal service is very slow.

Hi Vipin, is this tape biodegradable?

Yes, dear friend :-). It starts to degrade in few days, after contact with water.

Just got a roll from nursery grower supply.  They have to special order some so the price is 30 bucks now with 6 dollars shipping.  Normally i think they sell for 25

I buy grafting tape from Amazon.com. It is called 'docooler nursery grafting tape. It is made of polyethylene,is of high tensile strength, is stretchable and biodegradeable. It is the best tape I have come across.

i am a creature of habit...once i started using buddy tape i got hooked, but i am interested in experimenting with some unconventional materials and products.  I've considered using old plastic grocery bags to wrap scions....but never gave it an honest effort...

I bought the perforated "budded" tape from A.M. Leonard. It looks just like buddy tape, maybe it's sold to them and they put their own name on it. It was probably the cheapest around, and there's usually good coupons for a discount.

FYI -

I am getting a pallet of Buddy Tape by end of Feb. The new consignment has buddytape almost twice the size while price was increased only 50%, which is great as overall it makes it cheaper per how many grafts you get.

stay tuned. You can send preorder requests to me at Infofiles@gmail.com, once I receive the tape I will notify here. Pricing is not known until new lot arrives.
