I read an article a while ago about using water instead of soil to root cuttings. (may seem obvious but i hadnt thought of it until then). So i gave it a try over the summer with a hydrangea. This morning i was over the moon to see new roots forming!
So my question to you all is at what point should i put the cutting into a pot of compost to grow on, how long do the new roots need to be? At the moment i would say there are about 6 of them and they are around 1cm in length.
Also, once potted up, how quickly do they grow to a reasonable size so they can be planted out and no longer look like a cutting?
