I am still trying to get all this in my head straight.....If one stops the
auxins from flowing south - won't it also cause the bud graft to leaf out -
instead of waiting for the next year? Or is it rather a matter of distance
(or number of rootstock buds) from the apical bud to the graft?, Del
Del Stubbs - ag zone2/3, where the weekends' frost toasted the squash, some
grape leaves, and sweet corn, but heard it snowed north in Canada
Any computer folk know why my replies add a '>' instead of a normal '<'?
