John,

Aesculus glabra will not take from cuttings.  It has been tried commercially unsuccessfully over many years and is not recommended as a method of plant propagation.  Seed is used in lieu of asexual reproduction.  I might add here that A. hippocastanum (Common horsechestunut) native to Europe has been reproduced using cuttings which are taken between May and August but a strong rooting hormone is required to get them to root properly.  You can continue your experiment if you like. but I'm sure it will not root for you at all.

oh, fudge....Well, hopefully another can be answered. Is there a general rule of thumb, aside from species, regarding size limitations for hardwood cuttings? What has been the largest any of you have successfully rooted?

Doug moved to KY a few years ago.  I've seen some of these olives (and the trident frames) in person.  Very impressive.
