Rootstock/scion/bud...how does it work?
I'm a little fuzzy on how everything works when you bud onto a tree, lets say an apricot (Puget Gold) growing on a rootstock (Lovell) and budded (to new growth in the canopy of the tree) with say Satsuma (plum)...isn't the Puget Gold now the "rootstock" of that Satsuma...meaning they have to play nice/be compatible?. Does the Lovell have any influence on the Satsuma? So the Puget Gold is now just a interstem? Will the growth of the bud be determined by the Puget Gold, Lovell or both? I need to research these things a little more because I budded a ton of stuff this summer, and i'm really not sure what to expect.
