Grafting and Pruning Question
I am grafting the main stem of my seedlings using scions from another plant. The seedlings have lower branches that I have not yet grafted because I don't have enough branches on the scion donor plant to use to graft all of the lower branches.
My plan was to see if the grafts take and then if they branch, use those branches to graft the lower branches of the seedlings. And hopefully at some point the scion donor plant will branch more, too and I will have more scions to use.
However, that may take a long time since we are now getting cooler temps here. So I was wondering if I can just cut off the lower branches or is that a bad idea?
