Hort Workshop Semi-Hardwood Cuttings

Dear Fellow Weeders who might be interested in propagation:

     As I was collecting cuttings this week and filling my propagation boxes, I realized how much I missed doing this with my Weeder friends. Since we missed our annual semi-hardwood propagation workshop last week,  I thought I would send out my propagation handout with some updates and also the schedule for taking cuttings that is from the Green Scene,  July 1976. This is a handy list to have, so put it in your horticultural file!

    You will have most of the equipment needed for making cuttings. If you need Perlite, I have a little that I can share. I suspect you do not have Hormone #3. I can give you a little of that, too. It is quite expensive so you probably don’t want to don your mask and risk a trip to Mostardi’s. However, don your mask, tell me when you are coming and I will have some in an envelope on the red bench on my back porch.

    I encourage you to venture back into your gardens right now and make some cuttings. Follow the detailed instructions from my handout and make space in your gardens for some new fabulous shrubs.

    If you have questions, email me at amdoering@verizon.net.
