Ralph Shugert and Bruce Briggs
The question box session was convened at 4:00 p.m. with Ralph Shugert and Bruce Briggs serving as moderators.
MODERATOR SHUGERT: Does anyone have any comments to make about gel seeding? Does anyone have an address for a gel source?
GLEN LUMIS: We are doing a little work with black spruce. If anyone would like to write me I can put them on to some sources that can help them. My address is Department of Horticultural Sciences, University of Guelph, Ontario, Canada.
MODERATOR SHUGERT: During the tour of Weston Nurseries we saw the rooting of Pinus mugo cuttings. Please explain your procedure and do you take spring cuttings?
KATHLEEN FREELAND: We have not tried spring rooting of cuttings. We take them in the winter with good success. We are going to try candles next spring. The cuttings are 3-4 inces long and from current seasons growth. We are using 1% hormone. We have also experimented with Jim Wells Synnergol from England. We will know better next year how it worked.
