Tomato Grafting

Cherry tomatoes growing in my garden

Tomato grafting is very popular among home gardeners. We sell grafting clips and root stock seeds everyday. In fact, we cannot keep them in stock.

Plant grafting has been done for hundreds of years. Grafting is done with many different plants, not just with tomatoes. My in-laws used grafting with some of their apple trees in their apple orchard. David and I have not done grafting but some of our family members have. This article deals just with the grafting of tomatoes.

Some varieties of tomatoes and other plants are susceptible to disease so it is better for some to graft these types of tomatoes to root stock.

Root stock grows from seed to look like sticks with nothing growing on them. Then you cut the root stock and graft a piece of tomato plant into the root stock using grafting clips.

Below is a very brief explanation of grafting for tomato plants.

There are three kinds of grafting used for tomato plants, approach grafting, tube grafting, and cleft grafting.

Approach grafting is when you cut opposing tongue notches in the root stock and the shoot of the plant that produces fruit, also known as a scion. With this type of graft, the shoot is not cut off from its own root system until after the graft heals. They fit together with spring-loaded grafting clips. Both the root stock and the tomato plant are potted together until the grafting is healed. Then the scion is severed from the original root.

Tube grafting uses silicon grafting clips when the plants are very small.

Cleft grafting uses a V-shaped cut in the scion which is placed into the top of the root stock which has been sliced vertically down the center. Hold it together with a spring-loaded grafting clip.

The grafting clips should stay on the plant for seven to ten days  to make sure the grafted branch attaches to the root stock. Then the clips should be removed so the plant can grow without being damaged by the clips.

We were sitting at a train track today on our way from West Monroe, LA to Memphis when we notice a tractor trailer with a crane stuck on the train tracks. Then the train crossing lights came on and I grabbed the camera as the train smashed into the crane. We are getting a lot of comments about how we should have called 911 instead of filming. There was no need as we were sitting right in front of the police station. Believe me, they heard the crash and came running out. By the time we were able to go around the train and get to the other side, the police were over there and the driver of the truck was there as well. He is fine but we understand that the train engineers were in pretty bad shape. The thoughts and prayers of David's Garden Seeds And Products are with them. We pray that God will heal them. At the time of the crash, we were in shock and I had no idea what had come out of my mouth until I played the video back....you just don't know how you will react to tragedy that unfolds right before your eyes until it happens.
