Hi Ernie,

I'm probably going to buy a few more plants so please let us know which ones you are not going to try again.

I wrote up a response here but it is gone, I might have taken a phone call and forgot to come back and hit send. Anyway, we have a lot of wild grape vines around here and our side bed had at least 2 large ones growing up some small trees. I cut them down but left the base and root in place and am also interested in grafting a cutting from a good plant such as a Himrod or a red variety onto the old established root system. I don't think I'll be able to take a large enough cutting from this Himrod until next season and even then it will be small. I'll have to look around for a source. I suppose I could buy another plant and then graft the entire stem to it.
Please keep us up to date on your grafting.

Found this excellent writeup on grafting grape vines:
