Grafting Tape

Grafting Tape

Buddy tape is a flexible, rubbery tape holds bench grafts together and keeps in moisture! We have two options available:

  1. Packs of 50 pieces - each piece is 25mm x 60mm
  2. Individual rolls (perforated) - each roll is 60m long and has ~850 pieces of 25mm x 60mm sections of tape

To use this tape, simply wrap it around the graft union slowly moving it up and down around the union to ensure none of the cambium is exposed to the air. You can then rip a tiny bit off the end and use it to seal the tip of your scionwood as well so it doesn't dry out.

The tape will naturally biodegrade over time and fall off from the tree. However, be careful not to wrap the tree too tightly such that the tape becomes a thin strand rather than stays flat. This may begin to girdle your tree, a lesson we unfortunately learned the hard way.
