Stuck some hardwood honeyberry cuttings this weekend.
They were placed in 50/50 coarse washed sand and coir. Dipped in rooting hormone diluted to semi-hardwood strength which is 50% weaker than recommended hardwood dilution. Ive had success rooting honeyberry using softwood cuttings with no hormone so Im not sure if was even needed. No bottom heat being used because from my experience, haskap dont it.
Cuttings are all 4-6 inches long. A few contain a bit of 2 year old wood at the ends, but most are just 1 year wood from last summer.
I had some extra cuttings that I put in a jar with 200ml of distilled water, 1 drop of rooting hormone which I will be aerating via a bubble stone for one week. Then they will be rinsed off and bubbled with plain water until roots show (hopefully).
All these will be kept in a cool location, under my aquarium until something happens!
Ive never tried hardwood cuttings of this species, but read that it works. If you have any other ways of doing this or pictures to share I encourage you to do so.
Currently Im rooting Aurora, Indigo Gem and Honey Bee… Will try to post weekly pictures showing progress.
