I use A. M. Leonard's polly budding tape exclusively in grafting and budding nut and fruit trees. After popagating hundreds- if not thousands of trees, my success rate has been excellent. Friends and neighbors always ask me to include enough rolls in my order to accomodate their needs also. I prefer the half inch size in either white or clear. Thickness of .002 gauge seems to work best in most situations, but the .004 gauge is also handy for larger stock, and conditions such as strong winds which make the thicker tape more appropriate. A. M. Leonard provides competitive pricing, and excellent service.
works great for whip and tongue grafting for apples, pears
It was necessary to try a product which would stand up to winters harshness, it was perfect.
