Chemicals to get rid of buds on trees??
I make my cuts on my fruit trees and regular trees. I try and make the cuts as close as I can to the tree. I don't want a bud to sprout again in the spring. Yes, I try and use my finger nails to take off any buds I see. But I can't get to them all. Also suckers are a problem...Getting all the buds at the base of the tree. Just wondering if there is a chemical that will kill a bud (prevent if from sprouting) that does not hurt the rest of the tree. I'm going way out of the box here. I'm thinking of things like iodine, hydrogen peroxide, 2-4D, 2-4-5T. Is there a chemical on the market that will do this?? Can I put it in a little spray bottle or does it have to be applied like a paste?? Thanks, Brian in California
