rooting a cherry tree cutting
I recently got a cutting from a cherry tree (it seems to be a "shogetsu"). It was new growth and was green. I cut off the bark from the bottom inch and put rooting hormone and put it in peat. I put it in a large open ziplock (upside down) and have now added a little 1% peroxide since a little mold started growing.
I saw a few posts recommending removing leaves. This cutting has about 4 leaves on it (I removed the others). Are the leaves of any use for rooting or is it best to take them all off?
