So how do you graft your own plants? It sounds a little complicated, but the good news is you don’t need a science lab or even a background in horticulture. The first step is you need to decide which plants you want to grow. You ideally want to pick two plants that are closely related but not the same thing (which defeats the purpose of grafting). Two different types of apples would work well, or mangos, lemons with oranges (both citrus) or ornamental flowering plants like roses or magnolias.
