Inarching update

 

I just thought I'd update you on the progress of the inarching. As you can see the tree's growing well, and more than I think it ever did.

The inarches look healed pretty well

And the good news is the graft wasn't dead after all, though I think you'll agree it doesn't look healthy.

    Well done.  I had a go at grafting last year and now have some healthy baby Nana's apple trees.  No idea what they actually are but I had to give it a go for H2B as his Nana's bungalow was being sold and the tree is now no more.

    Always wanted to do grafting myself Jim.  Looks super neat job there. image

    That's a sad story with a happy ending though. It's such a great feeling to know you don't have to lose those precious plants. image

    Just to show they're still doing well and not a too embarrassing crop for a small tree, Picked a couple already but this one's best left until November. It's thrown up another sucker too. I'm letting it grow so I can take it off in the winter hopefully it will have some root of its own. Nice to graft something interesting on then give them away to friends.

    I just noticed those nasty snags. They've been there since I bought it. I'm off to tidy those up. image
