SUCKERs

 

 

SUCKER: These are similar to runners except that the horizontal parts of their stems are below the surface of the soil. Rooted suckers can be dug up and planted elsewhere. Shoots that grow from the understock on which a tree or shrub is budded are also called suckers. These should be cut off as low down as possible, otherwise they may kill off the named varieties that have been grafted or budded onto the understocks.
