Bud Break New Grafts

I kept apple scion wood and root stock in a shop fridge until finishing grafting 100+ about 10 days ago. I’m getting slow bud brake on the scions, they are in pots in shade and watered every other day.

What kind of fertilizer and spray is being suggested on this new wood? I’m thinking dormant oil and strep, maybe some neem across the summer?

All are limbertwigs, the brushy mtn is first to leaf and were the first grafted too.


I personally wouldn’t use anything on fresh grafts. Someone else may have better info.
