Metsugi

''Metsugi'' is a grafting technique and refers to grafting of buds of a tree into branches and trunks. After cutting into a ''daiki'' stock tree or cutting its bark open, a ''tsugiho'' scion made up of buds of ''hogi'' plant tissue in wedge shape will be inserted and fixed there. A number of buds can be grafted onto a single tree. As results can be obtained in a short period of time, re-grafting can be done in the same term. Non-coalescent buds turn darkish 10 to 15 days after the ''metsugi'' grafting process. ''Metsugi'' work is best carried out from August to September.
