remove stalked buds. The photo at right is an example of a successful graft I made earlier this year. Look carefully, you can see that I've already tied the new growth to a bamboo stake with green flagging tape in 3 places.
With this tree, I'll let the stump sprouts grow and re-graft the tree next year. I'll also leave the bamboo stake and all the graft wrapping in place to remind me that this tree needs re-grafting.
