Magnolia grafting

    1 responses

andygau01 starts with ...
I have what is supposed to be a weeping cherry. After ten years and only light pruning in June/July
To tidy it up, all it has ever achieved is a very small Afro top instead of a weeping top. The stem / trunk of the cherry was grafted onto is about 8ft high and about 8" in diameter.
I would like to know if it would be possible to graft a magnolia onto the trunk of this tree.
Will the grafts be viable?
Do I cut the top Cherry off at the original graft when trying to join the magnolia cuttings or can I leave this until the grafts take ( If they take).
Regards andygau01

Hi, it won't work, you can only graft other prunus species (eg. apricot, plum, a different cherry, almond, peach, nectarine) onto a prunus root stock, and even then some may be incompatible, or take but have a weak graft union which blows off in a big storm.
