We have a WONDERFUL NEW WEBSITE. There's still a few bits on this site that need to come across to it - but all the latest info is there.
Info about larger scale intensive agroforestry - Bridge Farm (who are actually Primrose Earth Centre) who feature as Case Study 3 which starts on p18 of the Ecological Land Co-op’s excellent report, ‘Small is Successful’ and also a report from the Soil Association: ‘Primrose Organic Centre energy descent and Gaia farming’. (With thanks to Josef Davies-Coates.)
Handy guide here
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!!!
Also, for taking grape cuttings in late autumn or spring and planting outside
