Graft orders can be accepted until the end of January 2021

There are two types of grafting we carry out; “own wood” where you can send in your pruning’s and we graft onto this, or grafting from the National Fruit Collection.

Here is a link to the National Fruit Collection database, www.nationalfruitcollection.org.uk/search.php which will allow you to choose the tree that you would like grafted.

The information we need to complete a graft is:

1. Which rootstock? – Follow this link for more information on selecting rootstock
2. Which variety? – Use the National Fruit Collection search link to find the name of the fruit
3. How many?

The cost to graft is £35.00 each regardless of it being an “own wood” or a graft from the National Fruit Collection.

Important note: All orders accepted are subject to graft wood being available from the National Fruit Collection and own graft wood supplied being of good quality. We will refund any payments made should we be unable to proceed with your graft. Our success rate is very high but in the unlikely event of a graft failing, we will be happy to attempt to re-graft your chosen variety the following season free of charge or offer a 50% refund of the grafting fee £17.50/tree.

Graft orders can be accepted until the end of January 2021

What should my scions look like when I send them to you?  Ideally the scions should be pencil thickness and similar to those shown in the illustration below.

Our grafting expert will advise you if the scion is untenable for the process quickly, the window to achieve the graft is quite short and some older trees are unsuitable for taking wood.
