Hey guys, I have a question about pinching back terminal buds. If the leaves have already burst, will removing the terminal leaf still have the same effect as if I were removing the bud in earlier development? Will it still cause one of the other leaves to produce the hormones to take lead? I'm working with a plant that has opposite leaves(Black Locust); so I'm just wondering what to expect being that I removed some of them on shoots that have yet to open and on already open shoots. I'm wondering if it could stop growth of the shoot all together, leading to other shoots forming.
