Grafting is a well-known method of improving crop performance of long-lived, woody plants like fruit and nut trees, roses, and grapes. Grafting is also used commercially to improve vegetable crops. This program demonstrates the principles and mechanics of grafting by using fast-growing annual vegetables. It explains the techniques of approach grafting and cleft grafting; teaches terms and definitions for grafting; and shows how to select suitable vegetables for matching the scion (leafy tops) with understock (roots). It demonstrates how to start the plants from seeds and discuss the sowing schedule. The program also shows how to cut and join the plants together using easy-to-see incisions, and presents various methods for wrapping and supporting a new graft. Viewers can see how to assemble a simple humidity chamber for housing the newly grafted plants and learn how to graft tomatoes, cucumbers, watermelons, and more.
