    I'm trying the rose cutting in the potato. (pics later).

    I took some cuttings from what I hope is an euonymous shrub. They haven't wilted and I started them three weeks ago.

    Autumn Joy Sedum. This seems to be doing alright, too. 3 weeks.

    I bought a small hanging basket with small coleus in it last year. I brought the coleus inside for the winter. In the spring I took six cuttings and put them in water to get roots. I planted them into this wooden crate. They fill the whole crate now.

    Who has started plants from cuttings this year?

    When my petunias start getting "leggy", I always cut the ends off and "plant" them next to "mama".

    Right now the only cuttings I'm rooting are basil cuttings. It's too hot here in Texas for much to propagate--fall works better for me. In November I'll be taking rose cuttings to root, and a new butter colored lantana that I hope to multiply.

    Always taking cuttings. :D :D Yesterday it was some cactus and succulent plants. The day before it was dividing the trillium bulbs. I'm sure I will find something tomorrow to gets starts going from. :D G uess it will probably be the marmalade heuchera.

    Barb, roses will bloom true to a cutting. I have found grafted rose cuttings aren't as vigorous as the parent plants from my Austin rose, but my cuttings from the blaze rose is. That has been the only difference I've found. Good luck with yours.

    None recently, but Ive got some Buddleia cuttings I took a month or so ago that seem to have rooted, as theyre putting out new growth. I tried cuttings 2 years ago that took, but then a few months later suddenly up and died :( I hope these guys do better.
    Also have 6 varieties of mint I rooted that Id like to sell eventually :)
