The experimental results shows that autumn budding significantly was superior then the spring budding in most characters specially the percentage of budding success, length of shoots, number of leaves/ plant, leaf area/ plant with 9%, 15.7%, 13.3%, 27.6% respectively .The treatments increased the percentage of budding and other vegetative characters as compared with the control, specially the treatment with 250 mg/ l Benzyl adenine and when the buds were kept in 4ºC for 24 hr, In which the highest percentage of budding success (82.21%) was recorded. The interaction between date of budding and the treatments significantly influenced the percentage of budding success and improving the vegetative characters.
