So i got this acer palmatum... had it about a month now. Been trying to decide what to do with it. I sort of decided what to cut and how and where to wire.

One thing i want to know before i go ahead, whats the succes rate of grats on these? And can you do grafts when foilage is still young ( see picture)? Cant seem to find an answer other that how to do graft. As this might change my approach

grafting works fine if you know how to graft.

As this is a very young plant, I see no need for grafting. You can get all the side branches you want by fertilizer, sun and pruning techniques.
