Finally removed the plastic and sphagnum ball from the Mandarin Pear, and as suspected, the wound had healed over without putting out any roots :cry: :cry: . Oh well, have learned that next time a much deeper cut needs to be made! :mrgreen:

Marcottage is the process of airlayering. Comes from the french "Marcotter", Marcot is the branch you have layered ,but only while it is still attached to the host, and also a Acronym for Maritime Combined Operations Training.
How do I know this,my younger brother was in the Merchant Navy.
I sometimes think I have spent a life aquiring a head full of useless knowledge, but then I go spend time with my trees and realise that nature has taught me more than any teacher or book.
