The OH x F and P. communis types propagate best by hardwood cuttings treated with indolebutyric acid (IBA) and callused in the fall. The P. calleryana types are best propagated by root cuttings or by leafy cuttings under mist.

How is pear propagated?
Most pear tree propagation is done through rootstock grafting, but with the proper care, growing pear trees from a cutting is possible. That said, I think it is advisable to start multiple cuttings to ensure that at least one will live.
How is rootstock propagated?
In trench layering, or dropping, the soil is layered over the entire rootstock tree. When the soil is removed in early winter, these new shoots will have roots at the base which become the new rootstock. The new rootstock is cut and planted immediately.
How are fruit trees propagated?
Fruit tree propagation is usually carried out vegetatively (non-sexually) by grafting or budding a desired variety onto a suitable rootstock. Perennial plants can be propagated either by sexual or vegetative means.
How are plums propagated?
Plums are usually propagated by budding onto either seedlings or rooted cuttings of rootstocks. Budding onto a rootstock provides the advantages of a root system that is resistant to certain pathogens or adverse environmental conditions while also growing the desired fruit-producing cultivar on top.
Can pear be propagated through grafting method?
Grafting is the best way to propagate pear trees. Grafting is done by cutting a branch off of one plant (called a scion) and attaching it to an entirely different plant. Pears can also be propagated by chip budding or T-budding onto compatible rootstocks.
How are apple varieties propagated?
Some of the most popular methods of propagation are grafting and budding. Layering is also done for apple rootstocks. Most apple production today is from clonally propagated fruiting varieties, which include MacIntosh, Crispin and Red Delicious, which are grafted and budded onto clonal rootstocks.
How is Apple propagated?
Apples are mostly propagated by shield budding, which gives a high percentage of success. In shield budding a single bud along with a shield piece of stem is cut along with the scion and inserted beneath the rind of the rootstock through a ‘T’ shaped incision during active growth period.
What are propagation methods?
The major methods of asexual propagation are cuttings, layering, division, budding and grafting. Cuttings involve rooting a severed piece of the parent plant; layering involves rooting a part of the parent and then severing it; and budding and grafting is joining two plant parts from different varieties.
What fruit trees can be propagated by grafting?
Fruit plants commonly propagated by T-budding and/or whip grafting are apples, peaches, nectarines, pears, persimmons and plums. Propagation by T-budding and whip grafting differs from other methods of asexual propagation because a rootstock and a scion piece of the desired variety are required.
What is transplantation method?
In agriculture and gardening, transplanting or replanting is the technique of moving a plant from one location to another. This is common in market gardening and truck farming, where setting out or planting out are synonymous with transplanting.
How do I get rootstock?
The rootstock had to be grown – either from seed, or more likely through clonal propagation. Scion wood from the desired variety had to be collected in winter, while the parent tree was dormant. The scion had to be grafted onto the rootstock by someone skilled at grafting.
What are apple rootstocks?
This marriage works because rootstocks are very closely related to scions – thus apple rootstocks are apple varieties in their own right, but where the main attribute is not fruit quality but tree size. Plum rootstocks can also be used for apricots and peaches, which shows just how closely these species are related.
