To get enough budwood this year. My normal process is to cut my budwood the mid Feb til Mar 1st. I got a partial cutting on 14 Feb. By the time the end of Feb arrived everything was flushing. Now I am gonna have to wait till current flush hardens off some to cut more budwood. Got an order off to ccpp. Cost me an arm and a leg. 2.50$ per bud plus shipping, plus phyto certificate. One thing about nature.......she is a mean mother and she can fool you.
