    Dear moderator ( I don’t know your name)

    Thanks for your reply. I fully understand what you are saying. There are more roads which lead to Rome, as long as we follow the rules of S&S 😉

    In the scientific article I mentioned, they did investigate prune cuttings and they find no correlation between cane diameter/distance to bud and desiccation length. But they only did experiments on one year old wood.
    I agree we should keep a sufficient piece of two year old wood too make a nice cut and not to damage the diaphragm. If you pre-prune in winter and do the fine tuning late February, there is no risk of frost damage. And I think a rule of thumb of approximately 2 cm is ok, depends on the situation.

    Nevertheless, is great that we have the opportunity to post some discussions here !
    Thanks.
