old man is cutting the leaf with eye , before he does that he soaks the cutting for a little bit until it swells , this way it will be easier to remove. when he raps on to the new tree , he does not cover the eye. it will take 11 days for the eye to opened. Enjoy

the lady did not need to be in that video- not with that outfit, kinda distracting from the topic. Perhaps that is the inspiration for those other ones of tyty.


this one is nice: making a triangule cut increases chances of cambium line up.

The lady is his niece or his daughter LOL!  They all have nieces with fake giggles, but the lesson is good!

It's really warm in Greece, so I understand her outfit.  Not sure what they are saying, and I wish I did, but pictures rule!  Love the video!!

Thats a  T bud been around for a long time. There is as well a inverted T bud where the horizontal cut is made at the bottom which is supposed to help with keeping water getting trapped and rotting the inserted bud.

We do t-buds in the vineyard, and we use grafting tape.

It is T-budding and very commonly used in the citrus industry and the stone fruit industry.

The important thing it to do it in the spring when the bark is "slipping". That means that there is active growth of the rootstock/tree, so that the bark is relatively loose (slipping), so that it can be easily peeled back to allow the insertion of the bud in behind bark, where it heals into the cambium of the root stock. 

In citrus, for example, you allow 4-6 weeks for the graft union to form, and then you bend (not fold) over the root stock, so that the new grafted but will have apical dominance (it is the highest bud, or close) which will cause the plant energy to be directed to the grafted but. When the new growth is will established, the rootstock growth above the grafted bud is removed.

When the bark is not "slipping" you would use a chip-bud technique, instead.

One of the advantages of budding is that you get more grafts out of the same amount of scion than you would get if you used wedge grafting or which and tongue, etc. In citrus when scion is sold by the bud, you want to maximize your investment by getting a tree from every bud.
