I'm travelling around various family members all over the UK for the next week.
The family members I'm with at the moment have a really gorgeous cherry tree that I would really like a cutting from, but won't get it home to do the actual rooting (hormone and potting) for another 5 days.
How long after taking the cutting off of the tree will it remain possible to successfully root it?
Is there anything I can do to maximise my chances of getting it home healthy? I would obviously take a few cuttings to increase my chances, but wondered if it is even worth it.
