[NAFEX] Rooting ribes

That's about the worst time to root them.  Once the buds break, the cuttings
won't root.  Much easier to wait a few weeks and root some green cuttings
under mist.  Or take dormant cuttings in the fall and plant them in moist
sand on the sheltered side of a building.  When they leaf out in spring they
are rooted and can be set out.   I used to do it for a big berry nursery.

Hello,

What is the best method to root currants early in the spring, when the plant
is no longer dormant?

Thanks,
Tom
