Cuttings and Cloners

Added a bunch of stuff from the yard to try out the new cloner I finally finished making last week. Figured I would try a little of everything I could find in the yard, Hybrid Tea Roses, Smoke Bush, Weigela, Arborvitae and a few others.

I pulled some cuttings that I started about 4 months ago and found that about 75% of them had a pretty good root system started. Above ground they looked like they were almost dead, but below ground they were very busy.
This is one of the Rose of Sharon cuttings I started 4 months ago, I transplanted them into a potting mix now that they had a good root system going,  Hopefully by the spring time I should have a good batch of plants to share with everyone.
