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

Re: [CHAT] Success!!!!!<br><br>Thanks all. It's not really my method. I
got it from gardenchat.

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

How wonderful, I am so<br>tickled. I may need to try&lt;br&gt;your
method myself. My record w/ cuttings<br>is relatively
abyssmal.&lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;On 8/9/05, Zemuly

that is very exciting. I'm<br>saving your instructions because
there&lt;br&gt;&gt; are several things around<br>here I would like to
take cuttings from. I have&lt;br&gt;&gt; an

'Bluebird'<br>althea that I would like to do and a hydrangea that was
sold&lt;br&gt;&gt; to me<br>as 'Annabelle' but<br><br>each blossom is
made up of gazillions of tiny&lt;br&gt;&gt; flowers. It is
very<br>fragrant. I know I can get starts by putting bricks
on&lt;br&gt;&gt; the limbs,<br>but your way sounds like so much more
fun.&lt;br&gt;&gt; zem&lt;br&gt;&gt; zone 7&lt;br&gt;&gt;<br>West

&lt;br&gt;&gt;<br>&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; You gotta see this! It
worked!&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; I finally got up the nerve<br>to check my
cuttings. 5 weeks in the clear&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; box outside in a
1:1<br>mix of moistened perlite and vermiculite. 100%&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt;
success on Deutzia<br>'Mont Rose' and Weigela ' Bristol Ruby'! OK, I

know&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; they are<br>easy, but this is the best i've ever
done even with them. I&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; also<br>did a few of Rose of
Sharon 'Blue Satin', Hydrangea serrata&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt;<br>'Bluebird',
and Syringa tribida 'Josee'. I had already potted
up<br>the&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; Josees, which had only about 30% success
when I decided to<br>take&lt;br&gt;&gt;
