  • Late Air Layer

    I decided to try an air layer on my Adriatic JH. I was going to prune the branch anyway. I know it's best to air layer in spring, but these branches have a ton of new growth, so I figured it was worth the experience to give it a try.

    IME ALs are less consistent this time of year and even the successful ones don’t root as fast. It seems to vary by variety for me. I started some on Sept 6 and noticed some roots this morning on a couple. Good luck 👍🏼

      I try ALs at all times of year except winter. They mostly all take with just the time factor being different. Good luck with yours.
