The Q&A Archives: Grafting References

Question: I am very interested in learning how to graft trees and vegetables. I would really like to become a "Grafting Guru" but haven't had any luck finding books on the subject. Could you please offer a couple suggestions for books?

Answer: Here are some books to consider. I'm not familiar with all of them, but I would imagine each would give the basic techniques of grafting. The last one on the list is a very complete, detailed textbook--I used a version of it in my plant propagation class in college. All these books are listed at the online bookstore, and I bet your local library could order them for you.
