Better Late Than Not?

CH277 Vines inside heat rootedOne of the variables we considered when the sticks were slow to strike was whether taking cuttings soon after vintage and before any significant frosts would affect the level of stored carbohydrates.  Of course, the need to access producing blocks before pruning dictated the timing.  However, the rapidity with which these CH277 cuttings have thrown roots is interesting as they were taken just prior to bud swell in early spring.  (Note to self – much more pleasant AND possibly more effective to take cuttings when it’s warm and sunny!)
