Attached you will find a copy of working with Figs (ficus) cuttings and also general growing techniques. The information was published by a Penn State Associate, the Ohio State information was too general.

Here is one of the best general fruit books I have seen, it has a very thorough section on fruit disease that have helped many a person to diagnose a problem and obtain a solution.

BEACH PLUMS?

I just found out about sand plums

What are beach plums?

After a quick search the beach seems the east' version of the chichasaw / sand plum

Will those root from hard wood cuttings?

Sorry for the long time without an answer, I have been working out of state with little time for fun and frivolity. You are correct about the beach plum being an eastern version of the sand plum. The specific genus is Prunus maritima, with several varieties. Oikos Tree Crops has a few varieties including a natural dwarf plant, the link is https://oikostreecro...rch=beach plum.

 

Seed can be used but they require cold stratification, so cuttings are a more time efficient method. Growing guides are shown below, hope you give them a try because the taste is very good and the dwarf variety fits nicely into an edible landscaping area.
