Re: Success!!!!!

That's the best thing about this. You stick them in and pretty much
forget about them for awhile. Early on I checked to be sure they didn't
lean and touch each other or if something died right away, but generally
there's nothing to do but wait. You don't have to remember to water them
or anything.

Thanks all. It's not really my method. I got it from gardenchat. Jim
S<br>gave some ideas and then I'm pretty sure it was Cathy or Melody
that<br>told me they always keep a box ready for cuttings this way on
the<br>kitchen counter. So I tried it with tenders with great results. I
wasn't<br>sure it would work for woodies, but it did. It's not
necessarily more<br>fun than your method Zem, but you can get a lot of
them in a small<br>space.<br><br><br>Kitty<br><br>-- Pam Evans
