Oak grafting in the open. The rind graft for oak demonstrated in three stages. 1. The rootstock is cut back to within 1 ft of the ground. The scions are inserted; the number per rootstock depending on the diameter of the stock, but normally one scion per inch of diameter. 2. The graft is tied and waxed and wherever possible 'sap drawers' branches are left on the rootstock to promote healing. 3. The completed graft tied and sealed. Churchill Inclosure, Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, England. 18/04/1950
