I use soft wood cuttings taken June/July & takes 6-8 weeks to root

Grafting may be done just as the spring buds begin to swell or a summer grafting in August can be very successful.

softwood cuttings are rooted by taking 6-8" lengths in July. Wound, apply high IBA (10,000ppm)stick using 1peat:3 pearlite under mist or poly. when rooted the cutting should be allowed to go through a dormant period (winter) before transplating. This method really sould only be done on species and will not work on many varieties. Best bet is to root species and graft cultivars on the stocks.
