15/03/19 - Project Update - just cataloguing a few grafts I’ve made. Corylus avellana ‘Red Majestic’ scions grafted onto straight species Corylus avellana rootstock, using an apical wedge graft - managed to do four of these, it’s quite a nice twisted form of Hazel in reddy/purple foliage and catkins 👌🏼 #graft #apicalwedgegraft ##propagation-grafting #corylus #corylusavellana #corylus-avellana #corylusavellanaredmajestic
