is there a "optimum length" the axillary bud/new-stem should reach before the cutting is taken ?? Should the cutting be taken immediately when the bud is apparent, or should you wait until the length of this new branch reaches a minimum or maximum length, for example are you looking for about 8-12mm of branch growth from this new bud before you take the cutting?
thanks for your guidance.
