    I mixed up a bag of sand with a bag of potting soil. i cut about 60 cuttings and stuck them in and covered the tray. so far i am getting some green leaves coming out. they look like they are real healthy and i am hopeful. But what the heck am i going to do with 60 gooseberries? since this is a propagation forum, anyone else having any luck propogating anything?

    I love gooseberries and would sure take some of your cuttings when they are well rooted. I have a lot of heirloom vegetable seed. Do you need anything? PM me if interested.
