I just got some apple, peach and pear trees. They're still kind of young but I'm wondering if i can just graft an extra branch on the side without cutting any of the ones it has (only has 2-3 thin ones).

sure you can add a bud graft anywhere, but you generally want to prune the branch that you are grafting to, so the bud is stimulated to grow.

  • That's the thing, i just got these trees, they might be around 6ft and have just a few branches, im guessing i should wait then?

    You can try... But branches and grafting are like money and gambling, don't risk what you aren't willing to lose :) Commented Feb 25, 2013 at 0:00
