As I mentioned in my other two posts, I am planning to propagat Azaleas and Clematis for a plant sale. I am planning to take cuttings to do so. I also want to propagate Rose, Carolina Allspice, Spirea, Gardenia, Hibiscus, and Lilac all using cuttings. The problem is, I have bad luck taking cuttings from woody plants and getting them to grow. Can you tell me the secret i getting them to grow before I actually take the cuttings? I would really appreciate any help you can give me.
