&gtOne of the tips the accomplished grafters gave me when teaching me
&gt;to do greenwood budding of nut trees, in July/Aug, was to prune out
&gt;the terminal bud - I'm presuming to remove apical dominance and
&gt;re-institute sapflow/growth, as referenced above.

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 '&gt;' instead of a normal '<'?
