    Default Vine Clippings over winter

    Hi there
    I read somewhere or saw a YouTube video that you can cut vine clippings (2-3 year old wood) and store it over the winter for transplanting? Is that right? Will it still be dormant or dead?

    If you want to grow some new vines now is a good time to take cuttings. What I do is take new wood (ie this season's growth) cut off about a foot trim that back to about 9" with a sharp knife cutting the base just below a joint and bury the bottom half in the ground.

    Best spots are the North side of buildings as long as the ground is fairly damp - leave them alone for about 18 months and you should get some new vines to transplant then - I'd say about 95+% success rate.

    Yep, I have done similar over the years and have managed to grow quite a few extra vines that way

    One idea is to plant cuttings in pots and place in a warm windowsill. They will strike and start to grow, giving you a head start for the coming spring.
