Cuttings from Laurel should root readily if semi-ripe cuttings are taken in mid-summer and planted immediately. Choose a stem that is just beginning to get a brownish bark-like look, remove all but the top few leaves, dip the cut end in rooting hormone and place each cutting in a prepared hole or in a pot of moistened potting soil. Keep the soil moist but not soggy wet and protect the cuttings from direct sunlight. You'll know when they've rooted by the new leaves that develop along the stem or top of the cutting.
