My grandfather has about 19 trees on his property, Gala, Gravenstein, Bramley, Transparent, Sparton small, Summer red, Snow sweet, Golden delicious, Melba, and Japanese-apple-pear.
If anyone has any tips on how to root cuttings from these trees, some tricks that they employ in doing so - it would be much appreciated; I have sort of taken it upon myself to try to preserve these trees that were mostly planted in the late 80’s early 90’s.
My question for the Japanese Apple-Pear, is can I graft the cuttings, onto a dwarf pear tree from the suckers that grow from said pear tree? The suckers are attached to the trunk, and I was thinking of maybe pinning them down with a brick, let them root into the soil dig them up to then graft onto, or could I just snip them off and make them root into potting soil?
