The Grafter's Handbook, 6th Edition

R.J. Garner's The Grafter's Handbook is the classic reference book and revered encyclopedia (and the only one of its kind) on plant propagation by grafting, and has been favored by orchardists and gardeners since its first publication in 1947. Now revised and updated for a new generation by respected horticulturist Steve Bradley, the all-time classic is back and better than ever. Everything the dedicated amateur, student, and professional horticulturalist wants to know about grafting is here, clearly written in a concise and straightforward style, the distillation of a lifetime's careful study and research. Chapters include information on compatilibility and cambial contact; rootstocks and their propagation; tools and accessories; methods of grafting; and grafting established trees.

I expected more from a book of this price and notoriety. It's heavy on jargon, and I've found better explanations in other more streamlined materials directed at the home-gardener. Some helpful information, but overall I'm disappointed. I recommend obtaining from a local library before you purchase.

Wow! This book has it all. Lots of descriptions, processes, how-to's, and diagrams. Having this book in hardcover is awesome because it lends itself well to taking out into the orchard.I'm glad I bought this book. Very informative. I am jazzed now to get out there and start doing some grafting!

Learned more in one to two hours reading than I have learned viewing isolated post and articles for the last two years.

I use the information as it pertains to grafting Japanese Maple trees, even though it has nothing specifically about maple grafting, but it is very through and informative. This is a good book for someone who wants to learn and perfect the finer points of grafting anything from fruit trees and pines to maples like me. A good book.

This book is OK, but is greatly overrated. It's not particularly well-written, nor are the images very clear or good, but it's got a lot of information, and you'll learn from it.But, there are better books out there.

The 'bible' of grafting techniques. An excellent description of the ways to join plants together, with plenty of drawings.

So much to learn about this process. I had no idea grafting took so many forms.

The Definitive Source for grafting knowledge.
