my friend let me take a cutting off her lavatera shrub can anyone tell me the best way to root it,, the easiest way please,



one of the easiest ways of rooting it would be to place it in a jar of rooting gel and wait until its rooted.

Only just read this I do cuttings of these & mallows (are they the same?) and hibiscus just a multi compost with extra sand / grit cut below a leaf bud trim green shoots of about half & inset into compost - pop a plastic bag on after watering & leave in a shady corner, should root in a couple of weeks....with a little luck of course
