The How, When, and Why of Grafting for Gardeners Course Content Homepage

"The ways or fashions of grafting are legion. There are as many ways as there are ways of whittling. The operator may fashion the union of the stock and the cion to suit himself, if only he apply cambium to cambium, make a close joint, and properly protect the work."
-- Liberty Hyde Bailey, Standard Cyclopedia of Horticulture, 1928
