Oh, and when I pruned the fruit trees this week, I decided on a whim, to try and strike the cuttings.

There is very little science in this experiment.  I hadn’t planned this at all, so the cuttings were all just in a pile together (ie, I have no idea which one is which!); I had to leave them a couple of hours before I went to the shops and got some root hormone; and I have never done this before of course!  And then, after the event, I realised most of our fruit trees are grafted on dwarfing root stock so if any of these take, they will be full size trees.  Ah, the fun of gardening J.
