Has this constriction method ever been used in rooting
dormant hardwood cuttings?

In my limited experience, I find that those that fail seem
to put all their energy into leafing out, which then fails
due to a lack of roots.

Would the constriction (restriction of cutting reserves) of
the above ground portion of the cutting force more energy
into the production of roots?
