Hi Rondi. Do you mean just cuttings or rooted cuttings (ie. small bushes)? I think it would be risky to place unrooted cuttings in the fall and expect them to survive until spring and then produce roots. However, you could plant small bushes, water them well, perhaps apply some mulch and expect reasonable survival over the winter.

Subject: [NAFEX] Currant cutting request

I've read somewhere that currant cutting can be planted here in the 
fall and so...

  I am looking for cuttings of red, white and especially black currants.

I'll cover shipping and a fee for the cuttings or can trade persimmon 
seeds or grape cuttings of the few varieties I have.

Thanks,

Rondi
