This grafting technique is most commonly applied to evergreen trees in the summer period.
A notch about 5 cms in length is made in the lower part of the trunk. The chamfered edge of a scion from the donor plant is then inserted. The graft is then bound with raffia and covered with grafting compound.
Where the technique is used to capitalise on a strong rootstock the original trunk may be severed just above the graft when it has taken the following spring.
