Thanks for the info
Hello, it may be too late now, but it doesn’t matter that one side is ready. If you split the center of the trunks base cleanly, then the zylem & floem cells will be able to bring up $ take down whatever it needs to prosper. It’s an old school trick to boost the tricanome production due to shock. The have read periodicals on growing, and seed sites till recently, but a small drill bit run through the center initially usually ends in success. Good luck!!!
