I took a softwood cutting of my friends grapevine.I removed all the leaves and branches.The softwood cutting is planted but has no leaves.Will the grapevine root?I really hope so as it is a single cutting and my friend won't be willing to give me another cutting.Please help thank you.

why did you remove all the leaves?

Normally you you would leave 1 or 2 leaves on any cutting but then again i am no expert in this area

take hardwood cuttings in Autumn if your friend will give them to you. Ask when they are being pruned usually in Winter time.

I removed all the leaves because I thought it will wilt off.It is actually a semi hardwood cutting as its a brownish colour but it's not hardwood .It has two buds.Will you please tell me will it still root.I really need that answer.Thank you.

It is hard to say....there is a certain failure rate with all cuttings, at least ones I have taken.

You will just have little patience and just have to wait and see

For My own benefit, I wasn't aware of how to take hardwood cuttings... seemingly you do have to remove all the leaves and 1/2 buds on the cutting.
