Rooting Cutting After Removing Bud
Has anyone had experience with rooting fig cuttings from which some or all of the buds on the portion in the rooting medium have been removed? I am interested in seeing if I can combine grafting and rooting cuttings. I want to know if I can both preserve grafting stock for future use by rooting it and use it as a bud source for grafting. I believe I have read that some growers 'wound' cuttings before placing them in rooting medium.
