When to graft a rose
Knowing the correct age of grafting is very important for having healthy and lush roses. As far as these plants are concerned, the age of grafting can be complicated to identify. The difficulty arises from the fact that the roses are grafted above all with a technique called “chipbudding” or “T graft”. With this technique, the time of grafting and removing the parts to be grafted does not coincide. It is precisely this discrepancy that can generate problems in choosing the correct graft age.
How to graft
Before grafting, choose a rootstock, which would be the plant on which to insert the part taken from the other. Generally, rootstocks for roses are wild plants. The part to be grafted or inserted in the rootstock is a bud, which is taken from a healthy rose and appropriately identified by the grower. The gem is inserted in a specific point of the stem where a T-shaped cut has been made. To facilitate rooting, the graft must be tied and glued with raffia and mastic or special elastic bands.
