Hi all

Saw a youtube where a bloke took a bunch of cutting from a Goji plant and just stuck the cuttings into potting mix. Heaps of cuttings = heaps of fruit trees!

I got really excited and wondered if there were other edible trees where you can just take cuttings a grow loads more as fruit trees are just so expensive!

Any have a list, or can we start one?

Thanks!

You might read up on air layering and tip layering too.

I have propagated grapes, gooseberries and currents from cuttings.  These can be done either in the summer as softwood cuttings or in the winter as hardwood cuttings.

Also, by putting the tip of raspberry canes into the ground they will root.



In the pot under the gooseberry bush I have some rooted gooseberry cuttings.

As soon as the leaves have fallen you can start your cuttings from Gooseberry Red and black current, Josta berry Mulberry and many others just go for it!
 
if you think brussel sprouts are yummy, you should try any other food. And this tiny ad:
