Propagating A Yoshino Cherry from Cuttings
About 6 weeks ago I was out limbing up a couple Yoshino cherry trees (Prunus x yedoensis) . I couldn't let the clippings just go to waste so I thought I would try my hand at rooting a Yoshino cherry from the greenwood cuttings. Previously I've only managed to root one Yoshino Cherry from a hardwood cutting and it didn't make it. Cherry trees are one of my favorite trees for the landscape since they have great flowers in the spring, grow relatively quickly, and can provide some nice shade.
