witch hazel grafts questions

Posted by perennialfan273 zone 5 (My Page) on

A while ago I did a little experiment grafting some witch hazels. I was looking at the grafts today, and the buds on some of the grafts look a little brown. They're not completely black, but I am wondering if this means that they're dead. On the other hand, some of the other grafts have nice plump, green buds that have formed where the graft union was made. I'm confident that these will survive, but I'm extremely concerened about the others. Can somebody please tell me if this is a bad sign, or if it's really nothing to worry about.

Thank You
