Decisions in making a 3-flap graft
You might be wondering why I didn't graft both stems. I find that wrapping the graft becomes a problem when you have another stem in the way. It hard to concentrate on pulling the grafting tape hard enough to compress the bark flaps against the scion when you keep bumping into another pecan shoot.
3-flap grafting method. The photo at right shows the completed graft along with an attached bamboo stake that I'll use for training the scion this summer.
