Future Fruit: An Introduction to Grafting Fruit Trees: a handbook by Nolan Calisch (cover illustration by Nina Montenegro of The Far Woods).
Grafting fruit trees is a vision for the future! A vision of more home orchards, more harvest gatherings, and more abundance for sharing around the neighborhood. It’s a vision for the next generation who are inheriting the choices we make and the trees we plant.
This handbook demystifies grafting and provides an entry point for those interested in propagating their own fruit. Included are step-by-step instructions about grafting new fruit trees, grafting new fruit varieties onto older trees, as well as recommendations on timing, tools, and approach.
