The Q&A Archives: Getting cutting to root?

Question: I have 3 different flowering plants in my front yard that I would like to take cuttings of so that I can root them for my Mom and my Sisters, the three plants are 1)Hydrangias 2) Tulip Tree and 3) Camelia Bushes. Can you please tell me how to take the cuttings and get them to root so that I can share these beautiful plants with my family?

Answer: Robert,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

In order to better describe how to root those plants from cutting see the following web site. Note the info on semi-hardwood cuttings for the plants you want to propagate.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
