Free plants from cuttings

Here is a tutorial of how I start plants like roses and lilacs from cuttings. It is simple and easy and I have had great results. http://www.backwoodscottage.blogspot.com/2012/05/lilacs-and-rooting-cuttings.html

    Cuttings can be done on a plethora of plants and a great way to share. Just a gentle reminder that if it is patented it is illegal to do so.

    Thanks for adding that, I should've mentioned I only start the old varieties that are not longer patented. You can't normally find these in any nursery, only old farmsteads or older neighborhoods. They have stood the test of time.

      @Pamela G every one of your how-tos I have opened has a huge picture of your work table as it says that covers up to 3/4 of the screen right over the top of all of you directions.

    Cuttings are a great way to keep plants going.

    I have started Butterfly Bushes from seed but I have not tried by cuttings. I will have to do that now and see, I have a lovely one out front to cut from.
