I have planted a softwood apple tree cutting with rooting hormone and placed the potted cutting inside a bag.Is this the best way to propagate apple tree cuttings.I am going to raise it as a rootstock.Is this the right way to propagate apple tree cuttings? If not please tell me the proper method.Thank You.

I might be wrong, but I think apple tree cuttings tend to be done using hardwood cuttings, in the spring.
It's a method not used that often, AFAIK.

The seed savers use this method, there might be some advice on their website:
