Owner's comments

I received three scion wood sticks in 2017 and grafted two them onto an M4, these did not take. Luckily I grafted one onto my rubinola mother tree. This year I grafted from the mother tree a cornish giliflower onto an M4. Until now (end May) I have not seen any activity, which should suggest that this graft has not been successful. I have to wait a little longer and keep a close eye on this graft. Supp. 2 months later: The graft has been taken.
