Grafting essentially involves taking the scion (bud or shoot) of one plant and attaching it to the rootstock of another
For tomatoes, this process involves growing two different varieties of tomatoes, cutting the stem of both plants when each has about 2 sets of leaves, and attaching the scion and rootstock of the two plants together using a silicon clip
Takes about 5 weeks from planting the seeds until plants are successfully grafted and ready to be moved to the field
