The best characteristics of rubber strips, nylon tape, wax and paraffin! Buds and grafts succeed at a high rate. The secret is its elasticity - a gentle stretch makes it self-adhesive. Seals the bud or graft tightly. Keeps the bud moist and secure while allowing air to permeate the wound. Permits a young, healthy bud to emerge through the tape. No need to remove by hand: biodegradable in sunlight. Works well in cold or hot weather. Recommended for: deciduous fruit and nut trees, roses, grapevines, citrus fruit trees, coniferous evergreens, ornamental trees, deciduous shade trees, and bonsai trees. 857 perforated 25 mm tape strips per roll; each measures 1" x 2-3/4" (unstretched), to create up to 1,714 tyings. Fast and easy for both T and chip buddings!

Perforated Budding Tape

Theodore Pino from CA wrote (December 18, 2016):

I used to use Parafilm­® and talked all my friends into it that used to use vinyl for grafting. I was low on Parafilm­® and thought that I would try A.M. Leonard's Budding Tape. It is absolutely wonderful. I use it on my stone fruit trees and my twenty plus varieties of avocados. Almost all my grafts take now and it is so easy to use. When I compared the price of this with the price of the other I wondered if it was worth the difference. The answer is a resounding "YES!". I use substantially less and it applies so easily. I have been grafting a lot lately and haven't used up my first roll. I bought two more just to have on hand so that I can give it to my friends. It has controlled stretch and doesn't break easily. It seals that grafts tightly and secures it well.

Making "Cocktail" Mango trees with Buddy Tape

Har Mahdeem from FL wrote (October 09, 2016):

When putting grafts of several different varieties on large mango trees in customer's yards, in southeast Florida, my grafts wrapped with cheap white tape tended to die. When I switched to Buddy Tape, the number of successful grafts went way up, making my activity commercially viable.

"this budding tape is so good, and so different from the competition, that its correct brand name is ""Buddy Tape,"" because one feels that it is one's buddy inincreasing graft takes and in usually eliminating opening of the tape during aftercare."

I like the product and can see that all the buds have calloused but due to drought conditions in our area this year, some buds did come through but grafts are still alive.
