● Step 1: Hold the grafting stock in the grafting tool and squeeze the handle to make the
cut. Repeat this step to cut a stem from the donor plant. Take care to ensure that the
groove is cut in the stock plant.
● Step 2: Slide the donor stem into the groove of the stock plant, matching the cut
surfaces as closely as possible. If the stock and donor plant are not the same size, match
on one side only.
● Step 3: Place sterilizing material around the join and bind with tape. The sterilizing
material will protect against bacteria and weather conditions.
◆ Use the pruner to cut useless branches from the plant.
◆ Do not use on dry or old hard wood.
