Has anyone had success with this? I have a few cutting in water and they haven't done anything in 3 wks. Anyone try rooting compound? My mother and sister would like some starts off my vines. Thank you!

Also what about azaleas? Can you start them from cuttings? Mom has a beautiful old/ancient lavender I would love to have.

Both of these can be air layered. I would use serpentine layering for the Clematis. You can find photos and instructions online.

Thanks, Clint. I will try googling serpentine layering. I know on some things you can bury a low branch. I wonder if I could do that on the old azalea.

That's what I'd try. My friend uses a brick to hold her branches down.

Ive used these before. You can do the same thing with ziplock bags by cutting them or other plastic.

I used potting soil. You can also use moss. I cut the plastic down the side so I could wrap it around. I secured it with the bread ties I saved. You could use any wire. It's important to wound the branch on one side and apply rooting hormone first.
