Question
Tell me,please,is there any chance to graft a cherry while in vegetation?I ask this because we have to move from current location before autumn and the cherry which grafts I want to use is very old to wait further more!

Answer
Hi Janko,

It seems you don't have much to lose by trying.  Also, why not try to root some pieces?  You don't mention what type of cherry it is, but many root very easily - even in a bucket of water. I would also try sticking some pieces in a well shaded area of the garden.
Thanks,
Susan
