  • In-season pruning

    I just started an experiment with using "Elmers" glue stick on in-season pruning to see if the glue can contain the bleeding. So far so good. I don't see an evidence of bleeding yet.
    I am using the extra strength glue stick. This is safe and non-toxic.

    Just cut with a clean pruner, immediately dry cut area and rub the glue stick on the cut right away.

    You may only view thumbnails in this gallery. This gallery has 5 photos.

    Interesting. Do you really think they bleed enough that it can harm the plants?
    Cutting sales have ended for the season. Plant sales will start March 1 at 8 eastern time. If it is still too cold in your area I can hold your plants till a date of your choosing.

      Rafed,
      Thanks for sharing your experiment. Please keep us updated...
      I usually just let them bleed (sometimes up to 2 days) then seal with pruning sealer, to slow tip die back for bud break closer to the cut.
