Propagating vines

Post: #283939 dave45

I have bought a load of dead twigs / prunings. a.k.a. Madeleine Angevine vine cuttings.

Any tips to make them root and thrive?

So far I have soaked them for 2 hours, planted some in perlite and potting compost, some of those on a heated seed tray, some with rooting gel straight into the ground outside, but most in pots.

What is the most hopeful method of rooting these?

I would say in deep pots with most of the cutting below the soil surface and put onto a heat pad or propagator making sure the compost doesn't dry out

I tried John Seymores method in SS

It worked well

I'm not sure about the heated propagator. I read somewhere that grape vines like their roots to be cool, so you plant them outside with the vine trained in to the greenhouse, or wherever.

I don't know if the same would apply to striking roots in the first place.

JS's technique was to bury 1 y/o hardwood cuttings in sand over the winter

Dig up in the spring at which stage the cutting should have started to grow roots, and plant out into thierfinal resting place, or a pot

As to growing conditions, i believe it depends on the variety
