Generally, only very closely related plants can be grafted--scion and
stock from the same species or genus. Rarely are intergeneric grafts
successful. Your tomato/eucalyptus scenario is probably impossible.
I don't think your method of "grafting" will work. A successful graft
requires fusion of two cambium layers, not penetration of the stock by
A good book on horticultural techniques--plant propagation--will
probably answer your questions.
