# Grafting orange and olive

.

## INTRODUZIONE

It is done in May June in northern Italy when grapefruit and orange grows and the bark is easily detached.

Grafting can be done in various ways.

# INDEX

## Orange grafting

1. dm of fresh scion with not barked semi-woody branches but from the previous year.
3. Protect moisture with plastic bag
4. protect with a paper bag from the sun’s rays.
5. Wait 25 days. If the scion is dead the graft has failed.

## Crown grafting with orange

#### A.  TRUNK PREPARATION

• give a good wet to the tree on which I make the graft.
• Attach the trunk
• Cut the trunk so that it does not peel
• surface of the cut should be smooth.

#### B. MARCH PREPARATION

• Remove the leaves from the scion leaving stalks of the leaves. Three buds on the scion. This branch of 2 slips.

• cut above the gem, under the straight part
• Sharpen scion on one side
• tiny incision on the other side on the tip

4 ready scions sharpened on one side with tiny incision on the other side:

#### C. GRAFT

graft in part of the swollen cortex where there are more vessels

wait 25 days to open and see if the scions have survived and sprouted.

## Crown grafting with olive

The grafting procedure with olive trees is similar to grafting with dogwood.

## conclusion

I made my grafts on April 17 in Lipari in Sicily.

The dogwood bloomed and I tried to get a branch that had no flowers.

For the olive tree I grafted the next day on a wild olive tree with scion taken from an olive branch which makes me good bitter green olives.
