Grafting and budding are important for plant reproduction because: of problems with growing from seed, including failure to reproduce true-to-type'; cuttings that don't root or do so poorly; rootstock selection promotes hardiness, high yields, drought tolerance, fast growth, and disease and insect resistance. Includes chapters on: Why Graft?; Basic Principles of Grafting & Budding; Scions and Rootstocks; Tools, Hygiene, Pests and Diseases; Grafting & Budding Methods; Special-purpose Grafts and Post-graft Care. "Any gardener can graft", says Allen Gilbert, and in this book he shows that the air of mystery and difficulty surrounding this age-old craft is a myth -- at least in Australia, where the warm weather means that, with the right techniques, you can be successful at grafting and budding nearly anywhere, anytime. Known to many as Gilby the grafter', Allen's many years of testing different techniques and possibilities underpin this guide to successful grafting.
