CUTTINGS INFO
GRAPES
I have a foolproof method. Take some cuttings (4 to 6") trim off lower leaves, wet ends and dust with rooting hormone powder, wrap ends in dark plastic (I used garbage bag) and fill with peat moss (slightly wet) and tie with elastic band. Place on top of refridgerator in dark spot. Will form roots in about 2 weeks, works with all kinds of cuttings. I have tried propagating many things without success and this works!!!
