We get asked a lot about how to cut scionwood for grafting.  Below is a simple example of this on a Wickson Crab.  The top picture is the picture of the Wickson Crab.  The bottom picture is zoomed in to show the difference between older wood and last years new growth.  Here's a link to more detailed instructions on cutting and storing scionwood.  Maple Valley Orchards has hundreds of heirloom apple varieties and can supply scionwood for them or can do the custom benchgrafting for you.
