I am trying to bud mazzard cherry rootstock in Lodi, CA.
It’s been really hot, above 105 F, and the most recent buds have dried up after one week. The parafilm budding tape has even cracked off! I think it will be hot for awhile.
Should I quit trying to bud and wait till cooler weather?
The little trees are well irrigated, green and bark slipping nicely, but it’s just baking hot.
Thanks for all replies.
