This presentation will cover a brief history of grafting vegetable plants and the potential benefits of grafting to reduce environmental stress and disease issues. Then he'll share a step-by-step of the grafting process specifically for tomatoes including planting timing, grafting techniques and tips, how to use 'healing chambers', etc..
