    I think you are making it sound too easy to graft apples on pear or pear on apple. often these grafts take initially but rarely live to production age. Grafting compatibilty in the prunus family is far better and it's quite easy to graft apricot to plum, plum to peach, etc.

    Great video. Thanks for sharing. Did you get to graft any pears onto your Apple trees this year?

    I have an Apple tree which i bought from Canadian Tire which is growing very healthy and tall, been in my back yard for around 5 years , but it has never produced flowers at all. Yes, not a single time it has flowered at all. I live in Regina, SK and the place its planted is quite open and sunny . I have other crab apple varieties that produce lots of flowers but not this one. What should i do with this variety. When i bought it, it was written on the label that it'll produce large apples, but it never even flowered.
    What do you suggest ? should i graft it with some other variety or try to do something with this one ?

    Can I graft the scion on my rootstock within 1-2 months of its plantation ?

    I have a thorn apple tree that is pretty large(about 10"dia). I was wondering if I could cut it, and graft my "good" apple trees, or even pear trees into the stump. I hate this thorn apple. It is dead center of my pasture field, and although it is a great shade tree, it drops thorny branches all over and its not the best place for the animals to lay. Will this tree stump support apple grafting or pear grafting? If so, when is the best time of the year to cut, and when should I graft?

    Thanks again for a very timely video Stephen. It's like you are reading my mind with this video.
    I live on the west edge of Calgary where the climate is harsh so I'm always concerned about viability of new trees. I've been focussing on haskaps and the UofS romance cherries for a while but now it's on to apples. I've been seeing these combo apple trees in the garden stores the last few years but always assumed they would be less hardy than a "single purpose" tree (don't know what to call the,). But if you are doing it, they must be ok so I'm going to get one. Now if I can just get the deer to read my mind and leave my trees alone…

    would love to practice grafting on my 10ft crab apple tree. Dont have any friends with fruit trees except cherry which drops too many seedlings. Loved your video though.
