I'm trying to understand how bud grafting actually works, but no book or website explains this: If not only the bark but also the cambium is lifted out, the cambium would end up on the outside of the bark of the bud that is inserted. How are they supposed to match up and grow if the open side of the bud cutting is only touching the internal wood of the stock? I finally just started shaving off the very thin bark where the bud will go, peeling off the sliver of wood on the bud cutting, and binding the bud to the exposed cambium.
The moth suit and wings road is much more exciting than taxes. Or this tiny ad:
