Cherry: What to do with these buds?

Posted by FruitNewbieNYC 7b (My Page) on

This is a craig's crimson cherry on zaiger newroot-1 rootsock. It's a bare root and just planted last week. The buds are breaking, in the picture the buds at the base are breaking.
Questions:
1. Are these buds (suckers) coming from rootstock?
2. Should I remove these buds, since it is so close to graft union?
3. If I do need to remove it, should I seal them with tree sealer to prevent canker? (close to averge 4 inch rain per month weather)

Sorry for the stupid questions. Just want to make sure I do it right.

Thank you

Alex

I would rub those off unless they are the only buds opening on the tree or you want a bush.

Those look to be above the graft union.
