Because doing cuttings aren't always easy. I'm trying to root some cuttings from the yard this fall. I would like to add more trees, bushes and vines... but who wants to pay nurseries for these plants over and over again when the plants I have will supply me with more?! Not to mention, I have a great neighbor who let me snip some of his plants for more cuttings to try.
So what am I trying? Some Lacecap Hydrenga in purple, a Georgia peach tree, Raspberry and Lantana.
I was giving a great idea (Thanks Joe) to create little humidity tents to try to help them to force root. We want some strong plants and they really need the heat to take.
This is my FIRST attempt as rooting, so I added a little hormone powder to help this along (I'm using the "Take Root" brand).
Wish me luck, this may not work at all!!!
