Definizione

A graft prepared by cutting both the scion and the stock in a sloping direction and securing them by tying or taping.1

Nota

Whip grafting (also called splice or tongue grafting) is one of the oldest methods of asexual plant propagation known. It is the predominant propagation method used on apples and is widely used on pear. Although most grapes are grown from cuttings, whip grafting is the standard when they are propagated. A major strong point for whip grafting nursery stock is the smooth and straight trees that are produced by this method.2

Contesto

Whip grafting is a common way to propagate many different plants. For the rootstock, use 1- to 2-year old vines, up to 3/4-inch in diameter. The scion size should match with the size of the rootstock.3
