Buds In Bearing Trees
In budding over some old peach trees, should I cut away the branch above
the bud when the latter seems to have taken?
The sap flow to the upper part of the branch should be checked by part
girdling or by part breaking or bending the top above the bud, after the
bud is seen to have set or taken. Do not remove the whole top until the
growth on the bud has started out well or else you will "drown it" with
excessive sap flow.
