OLD EASY METHOD OF BREEDING TREES AND BRUSHES

“Air layers” – used for reproduction of a large number of woody crops. This method is extremely convenient, since it does not require special equipment, and plants are not damaged much.

Root formation takes place on a non-separated stubborn shoot.

Air layers are obtained either in spring from the mature shoots of the previous year:

  • in 15-25 cm from its top we remove the ring of the bark and cover the damaged area from the light.
  • surround with warm and damp earth, moss or sawdust, and the roots begin to grow vigorously.
  • then the rooted lap is separated from the plant and planted.

Either at the end of the summer from the half-timbered shoots of the same year. Choose a growing shoot:

  • on a site of 15-30 sm from its top we delete all lateral branches and leaves.
  • then on the stem make a ring, as a result of which nutrients begin to accumulate in the place where it is necessary to cause the formation of roots.
  • and then as in the previous version.

The best medium for root formation is marsh moss, it perfectly retains moisture, breathable, and it is easy to handle with it:

  • at night we moss in water.
  • then take two large handfuls of moss, squeeze it lightly and roll it into a ball, so that all the fibers get tangled.
  • when you get a ball with a diameter of 6-7 cm, tear it with your fingers in half and these halves tightly squeeze the stem with the ring.
  • then moss is wrapped in a square piece of black polyethylene film, and both ends are tied to the stem with an insulating tape.
  • make sure that atmospheric moisture can not penetrate inside, otherwise moss will over-moisten.
