This book is a 32-page flimsy pamphlet of the kind that your local Agricultural Extension Service often gives away for free.There is a paucity of information, no pictures, poor hand-drawn graphics, no mention of anything of value to southern farmers. NO mention of air-layering, and NO compatibility tables for different types of fruit. Egad.
This little pamphlet is worth every penny. It has a great deal of information about grafting (scion and bud grafting). It breaks each method of grafting down into easy-to-understand steps, which are also illustrated. I have already begun experimenting with grafting apple trees.
We recently bought a small farm and orchard and were simply overwhelmed about what to do with the fruit trees. Fortunately for us, the local feed store was selling this great little book. It covers the essentials for successful grafting and budding, includes the info needed so that the proper tools are acquired and/or used, when to do the different types of grafting and budding, as well as the definitions of the various types of grafting.
The short bulletin is a functional guide to fruit tree grafting. The information provided would be helpful for anyone who is interested in grafting fruit trees. Information for both novice and seasoned gardener.
Another Story company pamphlet on things of interest to the home gardner. This booklet provides information for northern fruit trees like apples and pears.Warm weather trees such as orange, grapefruit and lime are not covered and may be different.Interesting booklet giving the basics.
This booklet has all the weekend gardener ie, grafter needs to know about grafting provided in a short concise format with good drawings to show you what your graft need to look like.
This is a great booklet with easy to understand instructions. The book covers several different methods of grafting and materials for the grafting process. After receiving the booklet I was able to graft 6 scions onto my 30 year old apple tree successfully. I highly recommend this booklet on grafting to anyone who wants to successfully graft quality scions onto their root stock.
This bulletin met my expectations and provided me with a few new ideas and techniques. If I only learned one thing from this bulletin, it would be money well spent. I learned several so its money in the bank.If you are familiar with extension service bulletins, then you have a good idea of Storey's bulletins. They provide simple "nuts and bolts" subject matter....as opposed to "Cake and ice cream". They are short, usually around 20 pages or so.
