If you're only using a single bud, you'll have much better success T-budding it.

Kelley, how can you tell that the buds aren't blind.  Do they look different from blind buds?

MrTexas said this: "You can usually tell if the lowest buds are blind or not by inspecting to make sure there is a bud there."  But this statement didn't make sense to me.  Unless "blind bud" literally means a junction (leaf junction?)  on a piece of wood without a bud in the junction.

Blind bud means no bud at all. Easily inspected for.

Laaz, that t-bud graft is super clean! I need to practice a lot more, as mine are pretty rough looking lol.

That's a inverted T-bud they work the best for me. The way I cut the buds, you can feel them pop right into the spot. If the rootstock is not slipping, you can chip bud as well.

I did a bunch of tutorials with many photos, but many of the photos were lost over time. Have a look here.  http://citrusgrowersstatic.chez.com/web/viewtopic0aed-2.php

If you still have the missing pictures I can put them back. You just send me the pictures and the exact place where I must put them.
Obviously, it's valid for everyone!

Question: any recommendations on getting a graft to wake up? My Carrubaro lemon is still green and the graft has fused (grafted at the end of December/beginning of January) but showing no signs of swelling. My two other amalfi grafts should be leafing out any day now.

Note: the Carrubaro is inside a plastic container that is sitting on a heat mat.

Thanks for your time! :)

Kelley






Put it in a garage, hot temp there might push thru the cutoff node.

Update: looks like the blind bud on my Carrubaro came through after all!

The budwood that I got this spring had no blind buds on it. Some of it was small & angular but usable.
