Propagating Trees and Bushes

2787 Views 5 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Rio
The more I look into it, the more I'm liking the idea of rooting trees and plants. Am considering for:

- Pines (species yet undetermined)
- Rose of Sharon (understand can be done late fall/now or March through May period)

Is Rooting Hormone generally recommended? Am also wondering, if I decide to use on a starter for a fruit tree such as apple, if it could have any known long term effects for the person who bites into it.

As far as the soil, what is best - sawdust... potting soil?

Is the object to normally get the root to start and then transplant it?
