I have planted some M25 rootstocks a few weeks ago and planning to graft them in two weeks. Someone I know have mentioned that I should rootstock to grow ungrafted for a year as grafting now might kill the plant.
Is this something to worry about or can I proceed?
Times have changed. Once upon a time. Grafting and budding was carried out in the open field. Nowadays most is completed, undercover and on the work bench. However, I note that you have already planted your rootstocks. I'd say. Go ahead. It might be advisable to offer some form of protection at the graft sight, due to the very unbalanced weather we are having. This is my general advice. You might wish to check further via other sources.
Many thanks, Mike!
