Cut the blossom's stems ASAP with a new sharp razor the sharpest little scissors you have.  As soon as the petals fall the stems get tougher.

The buds might not grow much this year, but should next year.

you don't pull hard enough and pull the bud off or damage it.  The Jonagold 
apple is notorious for that.

So I have a new one.  For whatever reason, this year, a number of the buds 
on my grafts produced flowers. Since I did a lot of single bud grafting am I 
out of luck or can they produce vegetative growth?  remmeber I am concerned 
about the single bud ones.

Sign me a rather puzzled rabbit.
