Fellow Nafexers,
    I recently budded about a half dozen cherry trees and the same amount of
peaches. The bark pulled back on all the grafts I wrapped with budding tape
and split the tape. Looks like most of the buds are still alive as new bark
appears to be growing under the old.  The ones I wrapped with grafting
rubbers stayed flat and look healthy. This evening I removed all the tape
and rubbers and painted over the grafts with Doc's grafting seal so I will
know which bud is the grafted one next spring when (and if) they start
growing. I know it's kinda dumb to ask this question after the fact, but
should I have put on the paint?
