Remove flower buds from scion?
« on: July 13, 2019, 10:12:07 PM »
I noticed two flower buds but no signs of leaves on a scion that I cleft grafted onto rootstock. Should I remove them?

Yup.  I just did this on a cutting I took.  Leaves came shortly after the flower buds were removed

I removed all flowers from 1 graft. A month later 1 new flower opens.
Now the graft holding 1 fruit. No leaves.
