Make Sloping Cut Below

Use current seasons growth to cut scions. Scions are the small branches of the desired variety that you will graft onto a larger piece of the living stock plant. Stock plants are seedlings which are not likely to bear quality fruit or nuts unless they are grafted.

To start, choose a suitable bud on a small branch and make a sloping cut one-half inch below the base of the leaf.
