t-budding update from cccp scion
« on: March 25, 2020, 12:43:49 PM »
So I did some t-budding onto a carrizo exactly 3 weeks ago.   I remove the grafting tape this morning.  I'm not sure the t-bud take or not.  Can anyone take a look at let me know which one takes?

The second to last bud is failing from the top, but alive from the center on down, could potentially go either way. The remainder appear to be alive. Once you force the buds, it will become more definitive.

All the t-bud are on two branches...should I part of the top of the two branch off?  Thanks

Break the rootstock about 2 inches above the highest t-bud and leave it attached for a few weeks.

I would retape it just to make sure it's still attached, and would leave only the bud eye exposed.

Agreeing with lebmung, premature removing of tape can cause the not yet fully healed edges to peel back and fail. After being fully healed, binding is no longer needed.

This is the same tree at progressive stages of growth after grafting.

Looks good
 You should be able to force bud growth soon.
