I'd suggest learning to chip bud. That way, you don't have to worry if the
bark is slipping and you have a longer window of opportunity. As long as
the plant is still active, a chip bud will usually heal in. Here, watering
the plants well before budding is usually enough to stimulate them to heal
the buds in well.
