Late in the summer, I T-grafted a pear variety, it took, and I was expecting it to bud out this coming spring. However, my dog brushed up against the tree and broke the bud off. Can I expect there to be a latent bud behind the one that was snapped off or is all lost? (In the photo, the area where the bud was attached was green when it broke off. It has since been about two weeks, which is why it now looks brown.)
Always frustrating when something like that happens! Based on my experience, I wouldn’t count on any latent bud, but the surrounding tissues look to be alive, so you could always try it. If it was my tree, I’d probably just graft it in the spring.
