It doesn't take a lot of space and I thought I'd try propagating in the new orchard. I didn't use any rooting hormone and we'll see what happens. The cuttings were from thornless blackberry and the purple flowering desert willow in the hoophouse, got some grape and (I think) raspberry cuttings from MG Rita and I also stuck some of the Chinese Apricot cuttings from the hoophouse. A little premature as I don't know yet whether it'll ever bear fruit.
I'll probably add some shade cloth and plan on setting up a misting system in the orchard.
These were supposed to be HARDWOOD cuttings, but some of the berries kept growing leaves through winter.
