LEAF-BUD OR SIDE-GRAFT NURSE GRAFTS FOR DIFFICULT-TO-ROOT RHODODENDRON CULTIVARS1
John J. McQuire, WM. Johnson and C. Dawson
The leaf-bud and side-graft methods were compared as methods for propagating rhododendron cultivars on unrooted nurse rootstocks in outdoor mist-beds in summer. No significant differences in grafting percentage were found between the methods nor did either method show inhibitory effects of scions on rooting of nurse rootstocks. Both methods produced plants within 10 weeks.
