Propagating 'Fortuniana' and grafting/budding to it

4 months ago

I've been "threatening" for years to make a series of instructional videos on how we work with 'Fortuniana' at Florida Southern College, since so many people seem to be interested. So today was the day! Our methods are pretty much "standard" for commercial nursery production in Florida, and they work well for us. Enjoy!

1 Fortuniana as a Rose Rootstock

2 Basic Grafting Equipment and Technique

3 Rooting Fortuniana Cuttings

4 Cleft Bench Grafting Fortuniana

5 Chip Budding onto Fortuniana

    On another thread someone had asked about rootstock from UC Davis. I've never used it, but Cori Anne did a couple of years ago and had great success rooting it in NCal. Never did hear how her grafting experiment turned out though. : (( Thank you for the excellent resources, MM.
