has anyone propagated paw paws? i have a stand on some public land nearby
that suckers like crazy. last fall i dug out one of the suckers and looked
at a few others, and they all seem to have a very strong, woody taproot.
there are tons of them in the area, and they're nearby a grass trail, so the
ones on the edge simply get mowed down every summer. i've read that the
most successful way to propagate paw paws is through grafting, but i have
no rootstock to begin with. anyone have any hints on propagating the
also, i'm trying my hand at some hardwood cuttings of nanking cherry,
blueberry, currant, and a few nut trees. i have softwood cuttings of hardy
kiwis as well. i was going to try rooting hormone, but i'm fairly
inexperienced with woody plant propagation. any tips are welcomed.
i'm looking for a good source of ribes and medlars, too.
