First year grafting apple trees…i read up on grafting itself, but now i’m at the point where okay good majority of grafts are putting on growth and now i’m clueless. I did prune/thumb out all the rootstock growth that came up, but i used scions w/ 2-4 buds and seems like most of the buds have leafed out.
What should my first year pruning/training look like. I’m aware of when i got 2-3 year tree pruning techniques no one talks about first year pruning to start the process
Should i be training just 1 of the buds to be my main leader this first year and trying to train it upward? should i be going for two main buds coming up?
