I grafted 11 shoots from my prize pear tree to my Barlett pear tree. 7 of the shoots "took". Now they are approaching their first birthday. What are the suggested steps in cultivating those shoots into sizable bearing branches?? The Barlett tree is about 14" in diamter is is thought to be about 40 years old.
I would be happy to discuss this with you on the phone. Feel free to give me a call at 541-386-3343 ext 38255 at your convenience. I am in and out a fair amount, so if you get my voicemail, leave a message with your phone number and I will call you back.
