How do I cut off some of my jasmine so a friend can plant it? Does it need roots? Do I put the clippings in water? Do I dig down and break off some of the root?
Please help! She wants some really bad.

You can root the clippings but it is better done in potting soil than in water. Roots formed in water generally die if moved to soil. I suggest bending a section of a vine to wound the tissues and then burying the wounded part about two inches below the soil surface. Keep that soil moist and it will form roots there in a 2 or 3 weeks. Then you can cut the plant away from the "mother plant" and then dig and transplant it.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
