Raspberry propagation from shoots
Hello! I was allowed to take some shoots growing up outside of the rows from a farm, but it was spur of the moment, and no shovel...figured it couldn't hurt to try to pull it! I have read around the internet, but havn't found a lot specifically on raspberries, or how to deal with the shoots. I ended up pulling a few off at the root, a couple above the root, and one shoot that had been cut down with a little shoot coming up...and the thick root system of the old cane came up with it. I have rooting hormone, but never used it before.
Most of the shoots are good, but a couple's leaves started to dry out. Could I still use them?
The ones that broke off the root, should I not cut the bottom? I would think the tissue from the root would create better roots. And if so, how much of the top should I cut off, if any? They are about 10 inches.
The ones that broke off higher up (without root tissue), how should I prepare them? And the one with the root system intact, should I just plant it as is? It was out of soil for about 2 hours.
