Budding and grafting are practiced either to change an undesirable plant variety to a more desirable one or to increase the planting stock of a desirable variety. This four-page publication describes several methods of budding and grafting—including whip grafting, cleft grafting, bark grafting, shield budding, and ring budding—as well as a listing of the most suitable methods for particular plants. Includes detailed illustrations, a glossary of terms, and a table of appropriate methods for budding/grafting apple, peach, pear, cherry, plum, and pecan trees.
