I have attempted one on a collected Hawthorn, it was done 2 years ago spring. At this point the branch is a bit bigger on the branch side than the donor side( I used an existing branch ). Hawthorn grow somewhat slowly but I am thinking that this years growth should force the closure and "graft" I hope will take and hold. Hopefully you can see it in the attached photo, it goes from the cut off trunk across to the taller trunk and to the rear a bit. I may or may not keep it in the end, it was kind of a try and see, not ready to decide yet, if it takes.

Seth, all you need is for there to be no leaves on the grafted branch, so it fits thru the hole thru the tree, late winter/early spring. The smaller the buds the tighter you can make the hole, thus quicker to graft together.
