Hooray for Propagation!

I usually try and take some cuttings at different times of the year but have never had much luck, especially with softwood shoots.  However I took some hardwood cuttings in August last year and with extra winter protection they’ve pretty much all taken – I’m well pleased with the success – there’s bound to be at least one potential bonsai out of this lot in a few years time!

Can’t quite remember but judging by the natural shape of the shoot it’s possibly Fuji Cherry.

The one I’m really chuffed about – Euonymus Alatus – winged spindle. Taken from a shrub in my Dad’s garden.

I’ll maybe let them grow in the containers this year and when roots are stronger and better developed, plant them in the ground.  Think I’ll play it by ear.
