Post Grafting - anyone with experience to give advice.
On our property we have a lovely established (16ys+) white nectarine tree, very established but in a shocking position.
Not only is it shaded for part of the day, it is right up against where we are planning on building. It's also growing on
a slight angle due to it's current position.
I have another established (approx same age, not sure what type) nectarine tree in the orchard in a much better spot.
I am thinking about taking a cutting of the existing tree with view to grafting it.

So I'm seeking advice on...
Which is better/ more successful - grafting onto the exsisting old tree or am I better off buying a new younger tree to graft to?
Would I be better off trying to strike a cutting off the old tree?
The most successful way to graft, nectarine / stone fruit tree's in particular?

Ta :)

Added a pic of it - that is it growing right on the corner of the existing house the tallest of the tree's- behind my 3 boys :) .

missing the pic J :(

Are you trying to take a cutting from the white nectarine and graft it onto another tree?

Thanks for pointing that out Bernie :oops: .

and I've also edited to add, that yes, I'd like to graft a piece of that tree to the other.
