I was first told about tomato grafting by the oldest allotmenter on my old allotment site. Norman told me he’d been grafting tomatoes for years after a friend showed him how. His friend worked at a commercial tomato growing site where it’s done to increase yield!

It’s not just tomatoes that can be grafted – they’ve been doing it for years with fruit trees too but also now you can buy these grafted veg plants:
