Hack Your Fruit Tree: the science & technique of grafting

Most fruit tree species don’t grow “true to seed.” Clonal propagation gets around that and that’s why the majority of trees you see in a nursery are grafted.

Learn the principles of grafting technique, why you’d want to use them in your garden, and what the heck those plant cells are up to from a gardener and a molecular biologist.
