KJB>Any help would be appreciated I successfully toke some cutting from the 100 year old concord grape arbor at the Ackerman homestead in Medford, Massachsuetts in 1996, after the fruiting was completed and before frosting.
Cutting were of old and new wood between 6" to 12". I split the cut ends abit before placeing in water. I don't recall useing any hormons that I have used for other cuttings.
From four planting sites at end of our car drive way, major growths have developed into an arbor about 10' square that had overgrown last year that fruit production was poor; so last fall after frosting I cut much of the existing wood brances away.
This year the foilage growth is back full force and I estimate we may have fruit production that I hope may fill a gallon pail; if the many squirals and birds leave some for us. We use Peters dry furtilizer which is largely nitrogen in the spring.
Stay young, OldAck.

We would cut a length of vine that had three buds. Then bury them (this in late fall) in a shallow ditch over winter. Come spring dig up and bury the bottom two buds in the earth. Don't let them dry out and magic happens.
