Graft refusing to push
« on: November 28, 2017, 04:49:44 PM »
I did an inverted t-bud of Golden Nugget on 9-17-17.  It healed up well, so I broke the top of the tree over pretty quickly, but now it's just sitting there refusing to grow.  The rootstock has tried to send out some growth above and below the GN a couple of times, but I have broken them off before they could get going. 

The tree was in a shady area while it initially recovered, but now it is in my winter grow room.  Temps staying between 70 and 90F.  Any suggestions guys?

I have no suggestion but I can tell I have some candidates likes this since 2 years. Still alive but no growth. I take part on this question.

A grafted bud can commonly take anywhere from 3 to 8 week to completely heal.   Give the bud some time.

Force it in the spring. It won't do much in winter.
