Grafting acacias

Recommended Posts

I know grafting of acacias isn't that easy but reading up a bit there are some examples of it working, has anyone ever successfully grafted a a.phlebophylla to a a.longifolia rootstock?

I don't know heaps about grafting but if that worked wouldn't it cause the phlebophylla to grow bigger,faster and also get around the the fungal? requirements phlebophylla has with it's roots for nitrogen?

What you said makes sense. Only one way to find out.

I tried this without any success. I think it was accuminata on simplex. But I had no success. I only tried this once with small plants. I think they were to small. When this is done with fruit trees for example they are 2 meters tall or so. I think this is totally possible with acacia.

There are a heap of cool grafted acacias for sale at bunnings so it should work. 
I think infi is on the money with needing to do it with more mature plants for the best success but young stuff should be doable as well.
