Grafting Finger Limes

    6 responses

Anonymous starts with ...
Anybody tried multi grafting finger limes? I'm thinking I might use the rainforest pearl as rootstock and graft on some better varieties.

cheers

Supposed to be okay to do. As with any double grafts, try to match varieties with like habits.

Thanks BJ, I'm going to give it a shot. Might be able to get something back on the RP fingerlime which I'm rapidly coming to realize was a bad investment.

I have only ever budded finger limes onto Troyer rootstock. You should be able to use RP as an inter stock but I have found all FL wood hard(tough) to work with . I have a 2 metre tall green variety I might try to cleft or whip a red onto one branch as an experiment

Gimme have you tried a rind/bark graft? Do you think this might be a viable option?

The main trouble with finger lime is getting budwood that is not thin as knitting needles.

I have never tried to bark graft sternus but it should be possible, I would just bud onto a sucker instead
