I thought I'd post and ask the advice of some more experienced members before attempting this.
2 Years ago I bought a peach tree and a pear tree and planted them in the back yard. I made a dumb move (partly because the trees were so small) and planted them WAY too close together. They are doing well but by the end of next summer they will definitely be branching into one another.
Call me lazy, I don't want to attempt to dig up the pear tree and move it. That's a lot of digging, and I generally don't have luck trying to dig up trees. The hard VA clay grips the roots and always ends up doing a lot of damage. Not to mention digging through the clay is a bear!
I thought I might try grafting the pear tree onto the peach tree and then just take out the remainder of the pear tree. I did some researching and video watching on "bark grafting" and I think that seems like the best way for me to go.
Any restrictions or suggestions? It doesn't matter that they are two different types of fruit tree does it? I watched a guy grafting three kinds of peaches together but I would think most any two fruit trees would work ok.
