Title: Air layer question
Post by: Stebry on March 12, 2014, 06:21 PM
Novice question - how large of a trunk/branch can you air layer?  With spring finally arriving in my part of the world, I have some branches on large trees in my yard I'd like to air layer off. Some of the branches are 4" or larger. I'm not very experienced with air layering. Is layering on stock this size successful?
