Kerry Pippin apple trees

Successful budding, a type of grafting using rootstock that continues to grow until the following winter/spring before being cut back to let the chosen variety take over.  It’s all about making a connection between the rootstock and the bud.

These are two apple trees, Kerry Pippins,  that I budded on a course a couple of years ago.

Buds about to burst open on a pear tree in spring. I love this time of year in the garden when everything is just coming back to life with the promise of a rich, green summer to come
