damson plums from seed?
Been a while since I posted here, but this is something I am not familiar with - hoping for some help.
My grandmother recently died at the age of 102! My sisters and I have great memories of her plum dumplings - yum. I went to her house and picked a basket of the plums - some type of damson plum. These trees are quite old - planted in the 1950's. I would like to try and propogate them from seed but I have never tried fruit trees from seed. Does anyone have advice on how to grow prunus seeds? I am assuming cold-warm strat - does one file or remove the hard outer shell of the seed or just plant the stone? If that doesn't work, will hard-wood cutting root if taken now (cool days of fall)? I suspect the house will be sold by spring. Can I assume that it is unlikely that the trees are hybrids or grafted given that they are so old - or not?
