Wild Plum and Apricot Cuttings

Post  Cordon on Tue Nov 27, 2012 11:36 pm

When is the best time of year to take Hardwood cuttings from Wild Plum or Apricot?

Any advice on fungicide to use while waiting for the cuttings to strike?

Thanks for any thoughts.

Michael Dirr seems to say that Prunus hardwood cuttings root in late summer. Many Prunus seem to require 1000-3000 ppm IBA a rooting hormone. His work has been done in Athens, GA. That climate is some different than New Mexico.

Personally, I have had poor luck trying to root Prunus hardwood cuttings.

Doing a little more research it seems that semi-hardwood cuttings are the best for prunus. Any suggestions on good brand of fungicide to use while waiting for the cuttings to strike?
