I got these hybrid cuttings from Cynthia Yancey. Of the 40 or so cuttings almost all of them still have the leaves they had when they were put in the ground. It has been over 3 weeks and I am hopeful they are putting down roots.
ON the other hand. This is one of the few 6 out of 40 Norton grape cuttings that I put in the ground this past February, complete with rooting hormone, leaf mulch, 2/3 of the stem buried. Nortons resist rooting. this stem seems to be choosing life, an exception amongst its peers. I had better luck layering my Nortons this past summer. 3 out of 8 lived. Still not good but better.
