Re: spider mites/curttings

I'm pretty much organic, too.  Actually, I'm more neglanic than organic.  I
just don't do ANYTHING unless necessary.  Lazy, busy, bad timing, lots of

Actually, I came across red spider mites (do they come in another color?) on
my Variegated Dogwood this morning when I took cuttings.  Just a couple of
mites, nothing to be alarmed about.  This was my last round of cuttings;
getting pretty late to be doing it, but then I was pretty late getting to
just about everything this year.  I'm curious, if the cuttings take, whether
the Japanese Maple will need staking since it is a weeping form.  Here's a
list of attempts, somewhere between 4 and 12 of each

Cut Leaf Lilac, Syringa laciniata 'Cutleaf Lilac'
Manchurian Lilac, Syringa patula 'Miss Kim'
Five leaf Aralia, Eleutherococcus sieboldianus
Doublefile Viburnum, Viburnum plicatum var. tomentosum 'Mariesii'
Smoke Bush, Cotinus coggygria
Variegated Tatarian Dogwood, Cornus alba 'Silver Blotch'
Fernleaf Buckthorn, Rhamnus frangula 'Asplenifolia'
Rose Acacia, Robinia hispida
Acer palmatum 'Orangeola'
Burkwood Viburnum, Viburnum x burkwoodii
