  • After a while when will come time to plant a lemon, pick up a special abutment knife, and at a height of about 10 cm above the ground in a pot, make an incision on the bark. The size of the cut is about 1 cm across and about 3 cm along the trunk of the lemon tree. Use a knife edge to gently spread the bark at the cut points.
  • On the cuttings (which you purchased and put in the cold), choose a good kidney. Cut it very carefully together with a small flap. We insert this shield with the kidney into the incision on the bark, press it down slightly (for best contact), and wrap it sufficiently tightly with adhesive tape on top. Only the kidney should remain on the surface.
