  • About

whip graft, the form used in grafting which simply involves an angled slice across the scion stem and a similarly angled cut of the stock, with the two cuts then matched and the graft tied tightly with grafting tape. Whip-and-tongue is the same except that another cut is made to raise ‘tongues’ of stem tissue that dovetail with each other and improve the strength of the graft.
