Hiya guys

Hoping someone can point me in the direction of an online seller of grafting tape and wax in the UK. I am from Ireland but can usually get most things sent over.

Thanks for any suggestions

Grafting tape is the same thing that florists use as "floral tape". You can probably find it locally at any craft store or florist.

Olga is right. Parafilm works. Not sure how much they are selling for 9 pounds there, but you can also check ebay.  Parafilm is a major staple in biochemistry laboratories.  I suspect the technicians are liberating surplus from the boffins.

Hey John,

For £9.00 you get 90 ft = approx 300 grafts.  You also get to support Martin Crawford and the Agroforestry Research Trust.

I got some tape from Ebay though I have heard of people using cut strips of plastic/freezer bag and it working just fine. Grafting wax I have also seen on there too and but I use a beeswax candle.
