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

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

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.
