Grafting an apple tree

    2 responses

Rod Browne starts with ...
I have a Ballarina (sp) apple tree , many years old

Get a lot of flowers not much fruit

I think I need an other tree but do not have the room

I saw on a show last week how easy it can be to graft fruit trees

Do I have a neighbour in Greystanes that have another variety of apple tree I can get a cutting from to graft onto my tree

we will have to wait till spring , I think .

I used the method seen on vasilies garden I.E. cutting of branch with saw cutting from top down through centre holding open with screw driver and inserting triangle shaped cuttings into bark line but i wrape newspapers around graft, 50mil below slit and 50 mil above cut level and fill with wet mud. should work if done now. regards brian

What are my chances of success with an apple graft this arvo, 6 Oct? I know, I'm at least 4 weeks late, here's what I did:

The scion I selected (crabapple cv "Georgeous"),still appeared to be dormant while most of the tree had burst into growth. The rootstock, or cultivar, a Ballerina, is well into growth and flowering.
The Ballerina has never given a single apple in 4 years due to what I recon is no suitable pollinators nearby. So the only fix is to graft a suitable pollinator.
Four weeks ago I grafted a few Pink lady scions onto it which have taken well, but I wanted to cover all bases and I thought a crabapple would do that. any comments as to my success rate?
