I grafted Utah juniper below nearly a year and a half ago (see “ Grafting Utah juniper “). Truth stems have taken -. So much so that it is time to remove part of the original foliage
Utah juniper grafted kishu Shimpaku foliage
After removal of most of the original foliage
left me two of the original branches alone as they grafted stems are growing more slowly than the others. That’s to be expected, since they have been shaded by the branches directly overhead.
less vigorous offspring
As for the new foliage, I’m leaving the links in place. I’m in no hurry to remove them, as they help keep the stems in place while the fused connections become stronger.
grafting tape and the rest of the bags graft
I probably remove the tape and bags sometime between now and the next spring, depending on how quickly growing stems.
