You might be successful taking hardwood cuttings, but my father showed
me another way. Dig a trench about 2-3" deep, a foot or two long,
pull down a limb into the trench, make a few scratches into the bark,
weight with a stone, and cover it up. Do 3 or 4 branches. The
next year check for roots then relocate the rooted branch to a
prepared hole in a sunny area. I found this method to be 70-80%
Good advice! I wait two years then cut from mother plant but let it
stay one more year then move. Might seem like a long time but once you
start plant transplants you will have new plants every year.
PS Think of gifts to friends or children in time. Yet another reason
to go with good varieties.
