Re: [nafex] nanking/prunus propagating, how?

Lee Reich in his Uncommon Fruits  book which is a continual reference for me
recommends  softwood cuttings taken at the time of fruit ripening and
treated as  Gianni advises or dormant cuttings of one year wood cut into 8
to 12 inch lengths  and plunged up to top bud in well drained soil in fall
or spring.   He does warn that  plants  rooted from cuttings won't have a
tap root and will be less drought resistant.  I was pleasantly  surprised by
my first Nanking cherries last summer. They were sweet  but too small to
process so  I enjoyed a handful  on the way to my mailbox for about a month.

Glad heat wave is over and awaiting snow tonight. vann  south central NH
