If I wanted to create my own 'family' apple tree, could I take a young already grafted tree, e.g. an Egremont Russet, bought in a nursery/garden centre, and graft another variety, e.g. Cox's Orange Pippin, onto a stem of it? Or does such a graft always have to be directly onto the stem of an actual root stock tree?

A graft onto a graft.
i've never seen that done successfully to be honest.
I presume the upper graft if it takes will then begin to dominate the tree.
Worth a try though and I would love to see the results.
A form of cleft or saddle graft would be the way to go if you attempt it that way.
See the really informative video below for details.

Otherwise Egremont Russet and Cox's Orange Pippin could be grafted onto your tree cut down to rootstock.

Let us know how you get on, Corylus avellana

Great video....He makes it look very easy..

Worth a go.

There's a bloke around here that grafts onto people's fruit trees for fun... He says it's the only time he gets to play at being God...

i've seen trees for sale in catalogues which bear two different types of fruit; not sure where the graft is on them, or how it's done.
