Avocado grafting techniques?

Q: Avocado grafting techniques?

A: Chip buds work with avocado. Do not take budwood after fruiting or in winter. Bend a twig and take buds from the top of the wood which does not bend easily. The top of the twig will usually bend a lot while lower wood is stiff. Take from the area between them. Graft on to a seedling leaving some leaves below to support the plant. The graft should be encouraged by bending down any nurse branches left on the seedling to give the graft dominance. Take off regrowth near the graft but leave leaves below for food supply.
