What is budwood?

Budwood is the same portion of the tree, just collected in August(for us - this may vary based on your climate), and it's used for bud grafting. We use the fresh shoots from the currant year, look for the growth collar (a ring at the base of the branch where it changes from 2 year old wood to 1 year wood). It should be around pencil thickness. Similar to scionwood, these buds determine what variety the grafted tree will be.
