Bundles are wrapped in perforated transparent plastic sheeting.
The wrapped packages are placed into crates which are piled to allow air circulation.
The crates are left in cold storage at a temperature above freezing (33-35F) for the Winter.
Ethylene generation is checked regularly as it could be toxic to the cuttings.
During cold storage a callus ferrule forms around the lower end of the basal end.
In the Spring the cuttings are planted in the open.
Basal Long Soak Method.
