I bought 50 chestnuts from Larry (indianasam?) this past October planning on attempting grafting surviving american chestnuts and ozark chinkapins. I recieved some scionwood from the amhurst chestnut in Virginia and ozark chinkapin scion wood from Gerald Gardner from Missouri. I just wanted to share some pictures and my experiences. I first would cut the tap root and split it preparing for a cleft graft. Then I cut a wedge on my scion wood which I soak in hydrogen peroxide for a couple of minutes. Also clean my knife and pruners with rubbing alcohol before starting. Lastly I fit the wedge into the cleft and make sure it's a good fit and wrap with parafilm to hold in moisture also wrap the cut end to retain moisture. Hopefully if all goes well should end up with this Any feedback or criticism is welcome.
