Re: Grafting with Prunus armeniaca mume
F.Y.I. I’ve had some success with rooting Ume cuttings from winter pruning in the Portland area. Crudely pushing the sticks into ground that had been previously used as a composting and then a sawdust holding area. January pruning. About 80% take. My Cultural practice is bad - after allowing soil to dry in spring to cracking- still had about 50% survival. I now try not to prune anywhere near a rainy season. My Ume is the white blossom not pink, and does not appreciate the wet.
