Here the graft is fixed to the side of the stock, which is planted or potted close to the plant to be worked.
When worked at the top of a stem formed of the stock, the growth from the graft or bud must be pruned in a similar way.
Grafting, however, has not been found to answer the purpose, since the stock and the graft have been found to retain their respective alkaloids in the natural proportion just as if growing separately.
Other race mixtures consist of the zambos (the African-Indian cross), an Asiatic graft upon these various crosses, and an extremely confusing intermixture of the various crosses, for which the Spanish races have descriptive appellations.
Harrarese is "a Semitic graft inserted into an indigenous stock" (Sir R.
This is effected by raising up a small mound of rich compost around it, a contrivance which induces the graft to emit roots into the surface soil.
Some of the American varieties have been introduced into France and other countries infested with Phylloxera, to serve as stocks on which to graft the better kinds of European vines, because their roots, though perhaps equally subject to the attacks of the insects, do not suffer so much injury from them as the European species.
Side-grafting is performed like whip-grafting, the graft being inserted on the side of a branch and not at the cut end of the stock.
The parts are, however, sometimes so small that the tongue of the graft is dispensed with, and the two stems simply pared smooth and bound together.
In this case the scion is grafted directly on to a portion of the root of some appropriate stock, both graft and stock being usually very small; the grafted root is then potted so as to cover the point of junction with the soil, and is plunged in the bed of the propagating house, where it gets the slight stimulus of a gentle bottom heat.
An artistic taste will recognize the essential differences, and not endeavour, apart from questions of strength, to graft a design suitable for one on another.
Grafting or " working " consists in the transfer of a branch, the " graft " or " scion," from one plant to another, which latter is termed the " stock."
From a careful series of experiments made in the Horticultural Society's Garden at Chiswick, it was found that where the soil is loamy, or light and slightly enriched with decayed vegetable matter, the apple succeeds best on the doucin stock, and the pear on the quince; and where it is chalky it is preferable to graft the apple on the crab, and the pear on the wild pear.
Among gardeners the general opinion is against the possibility of graft-hybridization.
Some quantity of cutch is exported, as also stick-lac, which the Red Karens graft so as to foster the production.
