Does anyone have experience rooting apple tree cuttings? I know I saw a vid about this from the UK, where they keep a large orchard of antique/rare varieties going via rooting cuttings. I'd like to try this, but can't locate the vid. I'm not sure what time of year to take the cuttings.

Cuttings taken winter or early spring are the easiest to root.
But keep in mind that many apple trees have been grafted to a rootstock often to keep the trees smaller and the fruit easier to pick. The cuttings may grow into a very large tree.

I don't have any experience personally on it, but I do know it is possible! I've seen the kinds of videos you're talking about and others on here I'm sure have done rooting from cuttings. I'm actually trying to get 2 varieties of trees to root from cuttings. Let me know your results as time passes, I'd love to see how it progressed! Good luck! :)
