yoshino cherry propagation

Posted by joytwo1839 z6 TN (My Page) on

Can you take cuttings from these trees and root them?
Or should you try to gather the seed? I'd rather try the cuttings but is this the right time and should you put
them in half sand and half potting soil. I want to try the Walmart containers posted on the forum- would it work?
Help is always appreciated.

RE: yoshino cherry propagation

I haven't done this myself yet (only just planted a yoshino this spring), but according to the Macon Cherry Festival website, propagation is very possible. In fact, apparently that's where all their cherry trees came from. How to do it?...someone else can help, hopefully.

RE: yoshino cherry propagation

Grafting is the method of choice & the only one I normally use. But have used cuttings of firm new growth applied 0.8% IBA (rooting hormone) stick in well drained soil & mist.
Takes 1.5 years to produce a plant in a 1 gal container.....

RE: yoshino cherry propagation

I am confused about the two methods of propagating a cherry tree. If you plant cuttings with rooting hormone the plant will eventually sprout roots underneath the soil. When you graft a bud from a parent tree does the bud from the parent grow roots between itself and the host? Also, do you need another cherry tree as the host?

RE: yoshino cherry propagation

use this. that way you dont waste any cuttings. from what ive seen if the branch doesnt root, just let it be and itl heal up and not be wasted. hope it helps

RE: yoshino cherry propagation

I planted a cherry tree using cuttings from sprouts of exposed tree roots into a 4 inch pot last spring. This month, now a year later, it has sprouted 2 branches of green leaves about 10 inch long each and the roots have outgrown the pot. Should I transfer it to a larger pot now or is it ok to plant it in the ground this month? Please advise. Thanks.
