Chip budding is well suited for the propagation of magnolias because it allows great flexibility in the scheduling of propagation. It is often practiced as a bench grafting technique in winter, and again in late summer and early fall. It is also used for outdoor grafting in spring, and in mid-to-late summer. In reality, chip budding is possible throughout the growing season. Highly specialized facilities are not required, if a greenhouse is used, grafts can be placed on an open bench. Grafting cases are not needed.

As a technique, chip budding is simple, easy to learn, and yields a high percentage of successful grafts. Close matching of stock and scion diameters is not necessary, permitting flexibility in rootstock utilization. Callusing of chip buds is rapid, and the graft unions are strong. Growth from the scion is vigorous, strongly upright, and of good form, frequently branching the first season. While these positive inducements apply generally to many species of broadleaved
