Re: further adventures in propagation

I have no idea what remay is, but you need to start hardening them off. Little guys have been living in a Disney [unreal] environment up to now and need to be introduced, albeit cautiously, to the real world.

Last fall I attempted my first hardwood cuttings. It was getting cold and late; time was short; clonex still hadn't arrived. So I just cut'em and stuck'em. I placed hoops over them and covered in remay.

I just checked under the hood today, and eureka! Some of them have new growth - amazing! All of the Jetbead are growing, some hydrangeas, a Mock orange, and a few others here and there. I'll leave them there til at least June, but here's my qstn:

Should I leave the remay on? Would these little cutting be a temptation to bunnies? I couldn't bear to lose them now. But does the remay cut down on their light? If so, perhas I should fence them? Anyone know what I should do next?
