I am determined to salvage that blueberry branch that broke off from the plant that I ordered. So here the following is what I ended up doing. Hopefully it will not be in vain.
For those that don't remember from my past post, I had planted a bluecrop highbush about a month back only to find it battle damaged from small boys playing in the backyard:
What I ended up doing to the broken branch was take it inside and put it in a cup of water and put it in a window sill. I have been surprised with how the buds have continued to grow and new buds have since formed.
So what I ended up doing is potting the cutting in peat moss. I soaked the peat moss in water and then placed the moss in a pot. I then put the branch in the peat moss and covered the pot in a plastic wrap to create a sort of humid effect to help keep a warm moisture to aid in root generation.
I currently have the cutting in my window in my office and so far I am surprised with how much new growth it is producing. Hopefully though by placing it in the peat moss it will give me some root so I can get it back out in the ground outside. I will keep you informed of the progress or lack thereof. Wish me luck.
