This is a 2nd year apricot tree. There are three main scaffolds at about 33" level. I’m still doing my work to train it.
Now I see several new buds below the main scaffolds. As low as just above the graft union. I’m thinking of rub off the ones very low, but keep one or two at the top. So I do not know if the new ones are too close to the main scaffolds and can be shaded and won’t fully develop. Also, are three scaffolds enough?
The tree will be fully fenced in, no deer pressure.
