Growing some roots on Current Cuttings   Leave a comment

Currents, you know the small raisens or grapes known as currents. Usualy golden and really sweet. The grapes grow on vines like any other grape. These vines are over a hundred years old and are really spookey. Some are 6/7 feet tall and walking down the rows can be very scary with all the gnarly arms sticking out and the anthropormorphic shapes.

I was invited by Steve DaSilva to make some cuttings of the unique shapes these grape branches have. The whole Bunker crew was there helping.

Frome left to right: Justin Case, Steve DaSilva, No Bai De and Curt and Rod

These were the four I cut. I screwed them to a small square of plywood to tie them into the pots. Backfilled with growing mix and now I just have to wait. Leaves are slow to come, around April. Might have roots before leaves.
