Yes I am desperate in propagating my sage plant. I have no idea why my herbs thyme, rosemary and sage is getting extremely difficult to propagate. For thyme and rosemary I can still get them to root in water and successfully grow them to maturity. A plant usually last me about a year at the most and I usually propagate new plants when I see the old plants are not quite happy. In the past it was as easy as ABC, just get some cutting and viola!!! new plants in just a month or so. But nowadays maybe after 3 attempts if lucky. But for sage this time the first success was after 5 times, meaning I have to take cutting five times from the donor before I can get one that will root. Each time I take about 5 cuttings. After transplanting the cutting with the roots it grew and looks very happy until a nesting bird came and peck it off as material for her nest. The shock was too much for the young plant and that was the end of it. Since then I had tried many times and all sorts of method and have not got any success. cutting in water - nothing happen cutting directly in the pot, big pot, medium pot and small pot - nothing happened Air layering directly on plant - Yes I am desperate!!!
