Plant grafting is a method of asexual plant propagation, which is broadly used in agriculture in fields, where tissues from one plant is fused together with another plant by artificial means, by hand. Trees and shrubs fall under this peculiar type of propagation.

Plant grafting is a method of propagation which brings together two plants by artificial means. The scion (a shoot or bud) of one plant is usually taped to the root stock of another so that the two plants 'fuse' together as they grow.

Grafting is often used with trees. In this process, the scion consists of a piece of wood and bark with a bud. The root stock of another plant has a piece cut out of it, where the scion is attached. If all goes according to plan, eventually the tissues of both plants grow together. This form of grafting is known as chip-budding.

Grafting is usually used for trees and shrubs grown commercially. The purpose of grafting is to produce a hybrid of two plants. For instance, a plant with desirable foliage may be grafted with a plant that has a strong root system. The aim is to produce the hardiest and most attractive plants possible.

Plant Grafting and budding are horticultural techniques used to join parts from two or more plants so that they appear to grow as a single plant.
