Hi Ed, Thanks for the reply.

So realizing mid/late summer is the best time and the cutee didn't have
a mist house. Would it be reasonable to assume that any success could be
achieved by not only relying on the peaches own built it hormone but 
hedging your bet by using powdered, liquid and also willow naturally
occurring along with trying to create a mist environment with a medium
bed that would stay covered throughout the winter duration and holding
moisture. Would this environ benefit by the use of heat cables?
I had some peach cuttings from season before last, taken in fall and
merely buried in a deep bed that had a window over it throw some roots.
But when I transplanted them into pots they succumbed.
The moisture box would have been the place to put them?

Also... what's the best way to get peach pits/seeds to germinate?

Thanks a million, Ed.
