Existing Bonsai A To Z Entry for Bud Graft


Bud Graft

 - (Procedure)

(No Photo)
Bonsai Care

Also known as Shield Graft.

In this process the bark of the tree where the graft is to be applied should be first well-soaked with water and a "T" cut should be made through to the CAMBIUM in the location where the new branch is required.

With shield/bud GRAFTING, instead of a SCION, just a small piece of bark with a well-formed heel is cut from the scion and inserted inside the "T" of the stock. This heel is the dormant bud lying at the join between the trunk and the leaf AXIL. The wound is bound with RAFFIA and coated with wax.
