Oh boy! It looks like I got myself into some heavy duty swapping. I joined a round robin swap on Garden Web which looks like a lot of fun. We are trading cuttings from plants we have for ones our traders have. I need to do some research on propagating the items I have offered as well as those I am going to receive. Even if none of the items survive my first attempts at propagation, I am sure I will learn a lot. I'll have to let you all know how things turn out.

Time to do some research! See you next time. Kim

p.s. am doing that research and found a great tip to pass along...when taking a cutting make a straight cut on the top and a diagonal cut on the root end. This way you can keep them in proper orientation to grow!

I was reading back on some of your posts on propagating, and I wonder if you have ever tried to grow Mock Orange off a cutting?

Sorry I haven't tried mock orange but I would bet it is treated like a soft or hardwood cutting. Try a google search on propagating mock orange and see what turns up. Thanks for visiting. Kim
