Graft Your Own Beautiful Japanese Maples at Home!
Japanese maple trees are by far some of the most beautiful and the most desired plants in gardens around the world. Those who have them love them, those who don’t covet them. But in garden stores they can be pricey! And the rare varieties are really hard to find even if you are willing to pay the price.

One of the reasons that they are pricey and difficult to find is because the most reliable means of propagating them is through the process of grafting the desired variety onto a rootstock grown from seed. Most growers just won’t be bothered to do grafting at their nurseries, therefore the supply of these beautiful trees is limited.
Grafting is not difficult! It just takes a little time and some patience. I’ve found that lots and lots of people are really interested in learning the art of grafting. Some for profit, many just for the satisfaction of producing beautiful plants that others don’t have, and cannot but at the corner market.

The tree on the cover of the DVD is a Waterfall Japanese maple. This is the fall color. Waterfall is a Laceleaf Japanese maple but instead of red leaves it has very delicate green leaves and spectacular fall color. With this DVD you’ll learn how to make all kinds of beautiful Japanese maples.
In this DVD I walk you through the process of growing Japanese maples from seed. The seedlings that you grow can easily be sold, or used for your own grafting. The demand just for Japanese maple seedlings is huge because those with good red color can be grown on to small trees and sold for as much as $50.00 or more, green seedlings are in great demand to those who want them for grafting.
In the second part of the DVD we do hands on grafting showing you exactly what tools and supplies you need (not many!) and step by step how to make the graft unions, when and how to collect the scion wood, how to prepare the seedlings for grafting and how to care for the grafted plants after you have grafted them.
I promise you, once you become a successful grafter there are few things you can do with plants that will give you more satisfaction. Your friends, family and neighbors will regard you as some kind of a gardening guru once you know how to graft. They will be in awe of you.
But more important than that, when you are gone, and we’re all leaving this life eventually, the plants that you graft today will live on long after you and I are gone. I can’t even begin to tell you how important that will be to your family and your dearest of friends.
