Post When start grafting:pots/in ground
My quince plants are already leafing out. They are beyond the bud stage. That seems like a good time to start whip and tongue grafting. My success rate has been higher when I graft them now, than later when they are completely leafed out. They are usually my first graftable plant to leaf out, but aronia will be soon too.

Since my surgery, bending down to graft low plants will be hard. I will heal completely , but that will be after grafting season. I may want to put them into a pot for better access. Will it change the time of when I should graft if I have them bare root, in the pot, or in the ground? Will they push out leaves less in a pot or bare root? Will it interrupt the process that I am trying to use?
