Re: RE: Re: Artemisias/Powis Castle


I cut the nicest thickest cuttings, dip them immediately in rooting
hormone and wrap in damp paper towels. Then wrap Saran Wrap around that
and tie it off gently w/ garden twine. If it's going to someplace cold,
then gets all wrapped up in bubble wrap and mailed Priority during the
week so the package is only two days average in transit and never left
sitting somewhere over a weekend. Marge said hers looked just wonderful
last year and it's way colder there than here.

Pam,

How do you mail these cuttings and keep them alive? What if the person you
are mailing to lives in a colder climate?  Just curious.

 Auralie, watch the one just labeled mugwort...it's a pernicious weed I have
been fighting for 20 years; travels underground by nasty white roots; the
smallest bit of which will create a new plant.

I love 'Powis Castle'....Pam sent me the MOST beautiful cuttings last year
as I had stupidly lost mine - you are right, it's not all that hardy, but if
you have a brain (unlike mine) that can remember something for more than a
nanosecond and you use it to remind yourself to take a few cuttings every
year, you'll always have it.
