Summary: The role of carbohydrate reserves in nursery performance of hardwood apple cuttings. Vigorous year-old winter shoots from a ten-year-old Merton 793 mother plantation were divided into cuttings 30 cm long. The first cutting (base cutting) was taken from the base where the shoot was attached to the stem. Cuttings towards the shoot terminal were called the second and third cuttings. These cuttings were planted in May and rooting percentage was determined in September. Cutting position had no influence on percentage rooting prior to budding. However, cuttings allowed to bud and grow, showed differences in survival. These differences were associated with the actual carbohydrate content of the cutting.
