Has anybody attempted to air layer in the late autumn or winter and then leave it until the next autumn? If so, does it work?

Since one can take hardwood cuttings in the autumn and leave them outside or in the fridge during the winter then root them in spring, I can't imagine an air layer would be any different. So I have attempted a small number (3) of air layerings on trees on my property in the last week.

Hi Oswiu,
I am no expert, and just a beginner, but my understanding is that you need to leave it approx 6 weeks minimum, I am not sure that it would be wise to wait until next autumn. I also recently have air layered a Crab Apple and the 6 weeks is up at the end of December, so if it is successful I shall plant it and place it in a frost free environment and see if I can be successful in growing my first Crab Apple Bonsai. Wish me luck I need it Rolling Eyes

Zorba68, I would be concerned that the crap apple would not have reached it's cold hour requirement by the end of December. I would leave it until at least March or April. This is something that can be researched fairly easily, however.
