Hello. Recently I corresponded (by phone and regular mail) with someone from Alberta who received protocols from the U of Saskatchewan for rooting Prunus. We plan to try them ourselves as we have been quite unsuccessful in our efforts to date. I will have to find the information and type it out for the group. I am leaving shortly for Easter so I will not get this done until sometime next week.

I saved a large handfull of dormant prunings from the tops of all the Evans
cherries the voles got, is there a way with some type of rooting hormone to
propagate these 12" sticks??
Thanks Tom, unfortunatly these are under an inch dia. and the 12" of
stripped trunk has already cracked to the center, so I must presume the
sapwod is dead also.

I would take cuttings now and store them, and bridge graft after they have
leafed out or are definately out ofdormancy.
That is what I would do with apples anyway.
