Cutting a Bud

Budding is only a modified form of grafting. One of its advantages is that each bud will become a separate branch, so that a rare variety may be more fully tested. The bud is removed by slicing off about an inch and a half of bark, including the bud, making the incision just deep enough to include a little of the wood.
