How do you propagate blueberry bushes cuttings?

I have some cuttings from my mothers blueberry bush and would like to start my own from it.

Hopefully you made your cuttings at the end of the summer, which is the best time. You should prepare your cuttings with root hormone powder, bag and store in your fridge till spring. Condition your soil to a PH of 4. 5 to 5. 0, fertilize and water regularly.

Hardwood cuttings are collected in the fall. Each cutting should be about 3/16" in diameter, 6-8" long. Refrigerate them, bundled together until March. Dip base in hormone and pot up.

Make a short and slanting slice on each side of the blueberry shoots. Place the shoots into moist soil. Keep them in a bright area but not directly in the sun. In time root will take place, at that point they will be ready to transplant into the ground.

Insert your new cutting in a pot filled with a seedling starter medium, it helps to put it in a small bag to keep warm, water as needed.
