Grape Hardwood Clippings

We saved a big clump of canes when we pruned the grapevines in December.

All the nice weather has inspired us to get them ready to try to grow new vines. First, we trimmed the canes down to ~8" long, with 3-5 decent buds.

Some of the clippings we used root hormone, some we just potted.

Most of the vines are Price (Concord) from our own vines, some are White grapes from our neighbor's vines.

Stay tuned to see how they do. This is our first try at hardwood starts... so we are curious to see how it goes.
