How do i take cuttings from a salix plamingo plant? whens the best time?



What a coincidence! I have just taken a few cuttings today of some that came in at, just call it a perk!!!!

They are straight shoots of last years stems about a foot and a half in length. Just stick them in the ground, right way up of course and keep them well watered. They will root quickly.

Being members of the Salicaceae (Poplars and Willows), they have root tissue already under the bark at several points so will not need any rooting aids such as hormone rooting powder/gel etc, indeed, this would just hamper them.

Really easy!
