Grafts of chestnut can be done on germinated seeds, the radicle of germinated seeds, and the hypocotyls and epicotyls. These grafting methods offer several advantages over conventional field grafting, including: no need for stock trees, grafting can be done indoors, timing is not critical and scions that have a small diameter can be used. In this study, the step by step process and the success of these methods of grafting have been discussed.
