hey all, i have a good sized(6ft) black jack fig tree with an approx 8"-9" sucker growing out by the trunk at soil level. it is leafed out as well. my question is, can i just cut it off at soil level and attempt to root it. would it be better to try and do it when dormant this winter? what would be the preferred method for this situation. btw, this would be my 1st attempt in propagating a tree. thanks in advance.
