Weeping Cherry Tree From a Branch

Terrystanley added on May 2, 2014 | Answered

Can you start a weeping cherry tree from a branch that you have to cut out of the original weeping cherry tree? I am having to prune back a snarled branch for our weeping cherry and would like to know if it is possible to start another tree from this branch.

Mostly, growers start new weeping cherry trees by grafting cuttings on to hardy root stocks. Some success with rooting softwood cuttings under intermittent mist has been noted. No reason you can't try - take cuttings from the ends of the branches, 2 leaves and 3 or 4 nodes, dust with rooting hormone, and place in rooting medium, and cover to conserve moisture. Use a lot of cuttings, if you're lucky, a few will root. Here's an article with info about rooting cuttings: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/tgen/how-to-root-cuttings-from-various-shrubs-bushes-and-trees.htm
