Multi Grafted Apple Tree
Malus x domestica
WHAT IS GRAFTING?
Simply put, Grafting is taking a cutting from one tree, and attaching it to another tree. They will heal together and grow as a single plant.
To accomplish this, we take advantage of the remarkable ability of plants to heal. Imagine if you accidentally cut off a finger, or an arm, and you could just tape it back on, bandage it up, and it would reattach itself.
Trees can do that. By grafting, you can decide exactly which varieties you want.
