Grafting tips

For successful grafting it is absolutely essential to keep everything clean and sterile as you go. Most grafting attempts fail if all of the tools are not 100% clean and free of bacteria and potential nasties. We always clean all of the branches and equipment 

multiple times during the grafting process using our unique Sydney Frangipani Gardening Antiseptic Spray (pictured right). Being hygienic is key to success. After all you wouldn't let somebody operate on you if they weren't clean and hygienic right? This product is available from our online store.
