Putting Chambourcin grape cuttings in the heated propagation bed

Randy and Jeremy took the Chambourcin hardwood cuttings that were collected last November out of cold storage and put them in a heated propagation bed in the root cellar. They labeled the bundles, put powdered hormone on the base and tapped any excess off, and then set them in the propagation bed so the basal ends were near the heat and the tops were exposed to the cool air in the root cellar.

Randy and Jeremy sort through the cuttings and make sure they are labeled for identification.

Randy coats the base of the cutting with Hormodin 1 rooting hormone and then taps off the excess powder.

After the cuttings have hormone applied, Jeremy buries the base in the propagation bed.

The cuttings are now heated at the base and should root readily.
