So you are flipping through gardening books and you see all of these beautiful hedges of blooming forsythia, or fragrant lilacs or stark red twig dogwood against a snowy floor. You decide that you are going to take the plunge and put a hedge up in between your property and the neighbor next door that has 5 junk cars in their yard. You go to the nursery and the plants are 18.97 each. $18.97 EACH?!? At that rate, you are going to be spending approximately $2000 on a HEDGE. Ridiculous, right?
The buds will probably open up when you bring the twigs indoors.
The only trick to this part is to replace the water if it gets brown or stinky and BE PATIENT!
Some plants will root within a week or two, but others will take a little longer.
|Yay!! Lots of these guys crawling around...|
After planting the cutting, fill in with soil around the roots.
