    Hi @Soys ,if you get the chance and have I-player check out BBC's A to Z of gardening.They're grafting Apple trees to make 'family' trees if that is the sort of thing you are thinking of:dunno:..
    Sounds interesting.:thumbsup:

          Sorry but I'm a bit confused. You mention grafting pear tree cuttings. Do you mean perhaps that you have some pear tree cuttings say from pruning, and now wish to graft them onto established rootstocks, or,. You have some rooted peartree cuttings and wish to use these as rootstocks and subsequently wish to perhaps obtain cuttings etc of other pear varieties and thus, hopefully build up a collection?

            @Soys Grafting is normally done in springtime. I would get hold of the desired rootstock ASAP and plant it in a pot. For a pear you want either Quince A (semi vigorous) or Quince C (dwarfing). Take your cutting material as late as possible and store in the fridge until spring. Then graft onto the rootstock and cross fingers.
