cherry trees

Asked June 29, 2020, 3:38 PM EDT

My wife want to grow some cherry trees seeds, so if you will kind enough clarify the points below. Why do we graft cherry trees. 1 is to increase hardiness & disease resistance? 2 to maintain fruit quality as from the mother tree? 3 to control tree size and vigor? Kind Regards Jorgen
