|HOW much did you spend????|

|Not much to see just a cutting. They are not selling rooted plants now seems the owner wants to plant the trees/bushes at his house so these will get very scare for the next three/four years. 99.00 got the cutting .... now have to get it rooted.|

At this time of year I would not venture trying to root such an expensive cutting, personally.

| You got us thinking around here about the grafting. Not real adept at it. But this might be one to try. |
Mark, done a few in water but have really good results with putting them in dirt. Makaha Sun is a beauty.

|I gave you and Stuart 5 acorns Robert because I think that is a great tutorial! I was successful 1 out of 10 on my graft, now I know why... I didn't do it as well as Stuart did |
