Hi,

I live in San Jose CA, love gardening, trying to get tropical plants around my home, have banana, sugar cane, mango so far.. trying hard to bring up coconut...Have 30 or so Rose bushes in my front yard...keeps me busy over the weekend :)

Have a nice greenhouse built to grow veggies across winter...little success in this first season!

Hope to get some good ideas on the grafting Avocado verities. Need to know the timing of grafting for Avocado. Have a hobby of grafting...My granny apple tree now produces 6 other varieties, Asian pear produce 2 other verities!

Hopefully I am helpful to this forum one day!
Prasad

Greetings, Prasad!

Sounds like you're proficient in grafting. Having grafted yet, but I hope to have the same success as you.

Last week, I bought Sir Prize and Lamb Hass 2 plants. Since my Avocado tree from see is no good, grafted branches from the newly bought plants. If my grafts work, then will chop of rest of the the branches, Tree should bare Lamb, Sir Prize and probably Hass (a friend of mine has a give away :)) and I should be able to see some flowers next year... My 3 years old tree is really doing well, very green about 10 ft tall already, probably I will graft some more types of the Avocado... keeping my finger crossed ...

Congrats on the avocado success. I have been enjoying ripe avocados from the trees the last 3 weeks or so.
