Super interesting

My goal this year was to increase my citrus variety count by making cocktail trees and my only successful grafts were on my yuzu and trifoliate seedlings.

I bud grafted all my plants in May then waited and waited. Six or seven weeks later the grafts on my trifoliate started growing. About four weeks later Yuzu finally started pushing and is still slowly pushing some buds out even as we approach fall. Think it's safe to say I should have grafted a little later.

Lots of what the text says resonated with my experiences this year - even the greener leaves on varieties grown on yuzu. Thanks for posting this!
