Citrus tree damage
« on: December 03, 2021, 11:01:17 AM »
Iím usually very cautious not to but defective trees( I tend to be destructive enough without help) but apparently I missed some pretty bad damage below the graft on this 5 gallon grapefruit. Is it worth keeping or salvaging or to compost camp?

Agree with Plantinyum, grafting itself is more traumatic than this wound. Also agree that the wound is healing nicely.

Thanks, I just noticed it this morning, it didnít look too deep but it was peeling off a bit so I made it a bit bigger by accident
