    Would add my thoughts on length too, and this is controversial, anything over 3" is unnecessary and probably a disadvantage ��

    If you're grafting in the field I suspect you may be correct, but I have a feeling the OP is grafting on to new 1 year old rootstocks in a controlled environment - effectively a bench graft.

    If you can stop the scion drying out I can't see any reason why you can't graft deep into the season unless there's some hormone thing going on ? I might try some this year rather than chip budding.
