Question: I live in so cal in la area I am intresting on learning drafting,from begning like when, how to cut the branches. Also the cuttings. Thank you.

Answer: Grafting can be simple or quite involved but is basically a process where a part called the scion is taken from one plant, and is attached to a second plant called the stock. The scion may be a single bud, a small twig bearing a few to several buds, a piece of stem, a terminal shoot, or a fragment of root of a desirable variety.

Many kinds of grafting are practiced by nursery growers for special purposes or with specific plants, but those best suited to the average gardeners needs are whip, cleft, side and bridge grafting.
