Budding

By: Jayne and Zach
Budding is a form of asexual reproduction in which a new organization develops from an outgrowth or bud on another one.
The subgroups of budding are T-budding, whip grafting, layering, and stooling.
Three different plants this method is used on are apple trees, pear trees, and peach trees.
Supplies/methods used to bud are budding knives and plastic tape.

Steps of this method:
1) Make a 'T' shaped notch. A 'T' shaped cut is made in the bark of the stock about 15 cm. from ground level.
2) Get the bud. The bud is then taken from the scion cutting in the shape of a shield.
3) The bud is now inserted into the 'T' shaped cut and bandaged.
