This post is about my experimentation with root grafting of figs, mulberries, and apricots. In late February and early March of 2022 I had to root prune a number of my trees that were being migrated to a new orchard. As a result, I had many root cuttings that were pretty healthy and I decided to experiment with using them as rootstocks. I grafted the scions of figs, mulberries and apricots onto the corresponding root pieces. Bellow are the pictures with the pieces of wood, roots, and the resulting plants.
Only two grafts were made, they both produced plants, and were planted in the new orchard just over 2 months after grafting.
