Hop Growers,

I have been granted access to a colleague's flourishing Cascade hop plants
to take whatever cuttings I wish. Two days ago I showed up at his house and
began to dig down to the root level only top find a huge "mother ship" root
system from which almost all the shoots propagated. I cut off a few shoots
and was told by my wife to stick the new cuttings in water to allow rootlets
to emerge prior to planting in soil. Unfortunately, the cuttings died right
there in the drinking glass, an unheroic death.

My question to you is what is the proper way to do this whole thing: cutting,
rooting, planting...? If anyone has any information by which I can improve, it
would be very generous and welcomed. Thanks

Frank Dobner
