I admit I don't do much rooting of anything; I even have trouble getting
willows to root! I hope others will post their success stories and offer
Aren't the OFxHs produced in stooling beds ?

What process do you use to root these softwood cuttings? In the ground
outside, in special rooting media in containers outside, under mist in a
greenhouse, or plastic tenting under artificial lights, with or without
bottom heat? What are your experiences with that process?
I am interested in propagating the pear rootstocks (OHXF, etc.). Any
experiences you can share would be helpful. I can propagate the Quince
rootstocks with no problems. I have more than I can use but the true pear
rootstocks are a hurdle.
