Views: 802751 Description: I think that grafting is very fun. It has taken me quite some time and practice to get good enough at it for it to work on a regular basis. The type of grafting in this video is known as T-Budding because the cut that is made in the rootstock rose (the rose used for its roots) for the scion (the desirable rose that is being grafted) to fit into looks like a capitol T. One thing that is very important for grafting to work is, of course clean tools, clean plant material, etc., but also good contact from the cambium of the rootstock to the cambium of the scion is required. The cambium layer is the actively growing tissue. Once the two have good contact with one another, this means that the cuts are nice and flat, not wavy, then they will begin to grow together, assuming that no infection sets in and the grafts are not disturbed. With practice, when the first graft that takes is discovered, it will be very exciting (at least it was for me).
Thanks to my cousin Andrew for filming this for me.....
