Re: artemisia cuttings

Thanks for voicing my question, Libby!  Pam, they are gorgeous and smell
sooooo good!  It's really nice to see some thing that is actually growing
now.  I'll take Libby, Jim, & Marge's advice and see if I can get 'em
through til I can plant outside many weeks from today.

I did go out and "fluff my mulch" (in the front yard along Main Street, no
less!) to see who was waking up.  I have some alliums, bleeding hearts, one
VERY green leaf of an old hollyhock, and about the first inch of daylilly
leaves peeking out of the ground.  Pussy willows are coming alive.  Weeping
willows are quite yellow.

It was really fun to be able to talk with Chris when I took my mother to a
memorial service on Long Island - we FINALLY connected!  Family time ruled,
however, and we couldn't get together.  Too bad.  The people on this list
are incredibly interesting.

Pam, they got here today and they are beautiful!  And what a fragrance -
love it.

Now, since I have played around with cuttings but never for something
that mattered as much to me as these... I put them in some nursery pots
with light potting soil, watered them, spritzed the foliage, and made
some little plastic tents to keep the humidity in. They are in a bedroom
where the cats cannot get to them, and will get indirect sunlight.

Is this a good way to go or have I done anything I should go promptly undo
or redo?
