Propagation





The grape commends itself to commercial and amateur growers alike by

its ease of propagation. The vines of all species may be propagated

from seed, and all but one of the several cultivated species may be

grown readily from cuttings or layers. All yield to grafting of one

kind or another. Seeds are planted only to produce new varieties. At

one time stocks were grown from seed, but this practice has fallen

into disrepute because of the great variations in the seedlings.

Varieties on their own roots and stocks are for most part propagated

from cuttings. In the production of stocks, the viticulturist sets the

orchardist a good example, for there can be no question that all

tree-fruits suffer from being grown on seedling stocks. The grape is a

vigorous, self-assertive plant and once it is started, whether from

seeds, cuttings or layers, seldom fails to grow.
