A New Jersey correspondent writes: "I have a few hundred plum stocks which I wish to graft, and could I not saddle graft them successfully during any pleasant weather this winter? Should I tie and cement?"

[Grafting of anything can be done all through winter, if the scion and grafted part be protected from frost. You must tie and wax, if whip or saddle grafted. We are partial, however, to cleft grafting, as when well done waxing only is required. - Ed. G. M.]
