[nafex] nanking/prunus propagating, how?

Last summer I tried propagating about 40 'vegatative growth' sticks of 
prunus tormentosa. I need a bunch, at least a hundred or so for a fruiting 
snow fence. We have 3 beauties, 6' high and 4 years old in our garden to 
take cuttings from.  Anyway, the cuttings I took last summer I put into a 
half mix of peat moss and garden soil and applied to the stem base 'Rootone' 
powder (napthaleneacetamide).  Out of 40 sticks I got one taker. I really 
want to grow my own. This fall I stuck a big handfull into a row like they 
were ribes, just to see if that might work next spring. We'll see. Sure 
looking for any propagating hints, even on prunus in general if no one has 
done tormentosa. Thanks!
