I've only budded a couple of peaches, and had 100% success rate, so does 
that make me an expert, or just a very lucky novice?
These were done in mid-late June, in AL - on the zone 7-8 interface.  I'd 
seen or read something somewhere about doing 'inverted T-bud' placements 
for stonefruits, so that's what I did.  Wrapped with budding rubbers, then 
Parafilm.

I did a bunch of bark grafts with dormant plum scions this spring, and got 
virtually 100% success.
