Are you talking about unrooted cuttings or rooted? What type of fruit bush?
I put blackcurrant cuttings in a slit trench in sandy soil in the veg patch. I then pot them up into a mix of compost and soil or plant them into final position., The only problem with the soil is weed seeds in it.
Thank you Fidgetbones.
Very helpful. I have a blackcurrent bush heading for its 3rd fruiting year. Given to me by a keen gardener who raised it from a cutting herself.
If you put foot long lengths of this years wood in a slit trench outside, just leave it until next winter when the leaves fall off , and then move to final position.
