PROPAGATION OF CARPINUS BETULUS ‘FASTIGIATA’
At Johnson Avenue Rare Plants Nursery, I used to propagate cultivars of Carpinus betulus by grafting them, during the winter months, on previous spring-potted understock of Carpinus betulus or Carpinus caroliniana. The grafting was done in the greenhouse at a temperature of 65° F, using the modified veneer system. I was somewhat annoyed by the unpredictable results so I explored a different way of propagation.
