First off thanks to everyone who has provided advice and criticism up to this point. I have learned a lot from you all so far. I unwrapped some of my budgrafts after 3 weeks. All of them except one appears to have taken. Dax, you were right, it appears the rootstocks are much more receptive when planted in comparison to bench grafting.(I still enjoy bench grafting though). Here are some pics. My only concern is that up top on some of these grafts there is some overlap, I hope these grafts survive, don’t fail eventually due to rot.
