Intensive Nursery Culture

We have been setting up thousands of fig and mulberry cuttings down at one of our many creeks, to passively start many – many fruit trees.

Pictures coming soon!

Comfrey Divisions
image
Some fig divisions (left tray) and grape cuttings (right tray) and seeds yet to emerge
image
Rooting Mulberry and Fig Cuttings (most are 2-node cuttings)
image
Several dozen cuttings each: grape, goji, fig, blackberry
image
Black Mulberry Cuttings, set about a week ago, some already rooting
image
More Black Mulberry Cuttings (very high survival rates without hormone)
image
Half/Half, Grape and Fig (2-node fig cuttings and 1 node grape cuttings)
image
Long strip of burlap was sprinkled with soil and lined with fig cuttings, and then rolled up (to be unrolled and divided out, after two weeks, resulting in about 50 young fig trees)
image
Dozens of seeds per 5 gal pot, to be divided and planted as small, bare-root trees this winter

 

image
Goji and Fig Cuttings – half have rooted so far without hormone (little over a week)
image
As roughly seen in the bottom right tray, if cuttings die, others move in asap
image
Many native shrub cuttings and many more wild grape
image
Mostly tree trays – seedlings are transplanted immediately after they stabilize*

*posture up and green out
