Talkback: How to take fruit bush cuttings

Any harm in potting up cuttings in a mixture of home soil and compost?

    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.
