About 3 weeks ago I grafted Apple scions to G890 root stock and placed the roots in damp potting soil. I kept them in 65 degrees for a week then kept them chilled until this week. Now that the weather is warming up here in Charlotte I moved them to my screened in porch. I’m seeing leafing on the root stock but not yet on the scion wood...and I’m getting panicky. Does the root stock typically start to grow 1st and then I’ll see growth on the scions? I’m just hoping I didn’t somehow screw up but I have no idea of knowing if the growth appears from the root stock upwards. This is the first time I’ve ever tried to graft anything so I’m really unsure.
Also...I’ve read that leaves on root stock should be trimmed off. Is that right?
