Such a GORGEOUS day here in the PNW, I decided to take a little time out to check on the cuttings I have been taking. Looks like at LEAST 1/2 of the thimbleberry cuttings I took on Aug. 18 (this year) are already rooted and growing! I wasn't sure, because of their stem, whether they would be a good candidate for stem cuttings --- although they seem to be perfectly fine being propagated that way. They were softwood cuttings with leaves, in a mix of sand and seed starting mix, outside (no mist) regular watering - and perfectly happy! Now I wish I would have done about 100 cuttings instead of 20!
