In the fall, I have always brought in cuttings from my annuals to overwinter and to have ready for my window boxes and pots for spring. I would grow them in 4-inch plastic pots on my windowsills covered with tin foil, which created a mess, and if I wanted to move them to another location, it took quite a while to move all of the separate pots.

When you take a cutting, make sure there are 1 or 2 nodes on the stem. Depending on the type of plant, don't remove the leaves or cut them in half.
I take cuttings of Begonias, tender succulents and varieties of "wandering jew" or Tradescantia
How about you?
