Plum budding followup


March is the month of perennials on our farm. Pruning, weeding, topdressing, mulching --- all fun tasks to slide into the warm afternoons that crop up at least a few times a week.


While I'm at it, I took a look at my one perennial experiment of the year --- budded plums. I Grafted two Buds per rootstock last summer, and it looks like that was just right since one of those buds (generally the top one) seems to have glued itself into the rootstock fairly well. I snipped the tops off the small trees to talk them into turning those grafted buds into shoots and will wait and see what progresses over the course of the growing season ahead.
