Re: [nafex] Girdled Apple Trees

I have also used the yellow Doc Farwell's for over 8 years now. I sometimes 
paint the whole graft if I don't bag. One year I put 27 left over apple 
scions on a 6 foot seedling and did every branch with a different variety of 
apple, splice grafts, rubber strips painted every graft completely from tip 
to bottom of rubber strip. They all took. My daughter has the tree planted 
at her farm now.  Yellow also lets me know where the new grafts are.
If color doesn't matter, I like the yellow stuff because I can spot a
topworked limb late in the season much easier with it.  That's the reason
for my personal preference in yellow.

I use the grey Farwells to seal the cut end of the scion when grafting, but
previous email mentioned covering the whole graft union with black asphalt
