I agree. It has been like this (unbeknownst to me) for many months. It has dried in this position.
I did this for now til i get brave and have the time to take my time and graft for the first time. I think there is a Sticky on how to graft? Which cut do you both prefer, diagonal? "V"?
I used an emery board. Thin enough to contour thick enough to hold and protect. The little 30" tree has 4 branches. So if the graft doesn't take, it will still be balanced somewhat.
