Mango Grafting

Normally I used to buy grafted mangoes and plant, they are generally costly as high as 250/- so thought of learning grafting technique. Since there are lots of videos available in youtube, it is easy to pickup. Bought some budding tape from agriculture shop and two mango saplings around the house were used for just to see if it works. I have a variety called 'Columbu' which is very tasty and bears fruits in every year. Last year, when all the varieties did not bear fruits, this variety gave some sweet mangoes.

Will get to know about the status after 3-4 weeks...

All three grafting has failed...I used the cutting for grafting after  a day, may be because of this, not sure. Anyway, this will be continued again.
