Can you transplant cuttings?

amhodge(z4 Indiana)June 2, 2009

I am new to this forum, was wondering if I could take cuttings or dig up roots from my neighbors plants and successfully plant them in my garden? If so, could you please let me know how much roots, and what procedure that I should follow. Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

You can do cuttings or ground layering. Here is a link to a website with more info.

How long will it take the baby plant to produce flowers. I got a baby from my forever pink hydrangea about two years ago, but no blooms yet. Granted the little thing is less that a foot tall.

Luis thank you for link - I've been reading up & guided by different methods from M.Dirr and Lawson-Hall & Rothera ... yet another reassurance from this link, I'm trying both cuttings & ground/self layering. As easy as everyone claims, rooting Hydrangeas, I should be able to count on succeeding.

I lost the arbor protecting Nikko from summer sun (from a Tornado that passed thru last Fall). I erected a temp one w/ just 8ft' stakes & garden fencing for Swt Autumn Clem to climb over ... as notorious a climber as SA-Clem is - not this season ... I'm getting tired of covering up with garden fab for the 4 hrs of scorching sun - relocation is the only recourse. Every expert I consulted, advised not to dig up a 19y/o Nikko ... surely a death warrant! I'll do it anyway, just to see if I can save a piece (but only after rooting efforts succeed)! I have a 'Lime Light' waiting on the side for the sunny site!

I've succeeded in rooting Lavenders by just pinning stems to the ground & covering with bricks ... should work with Nikko too!

Good luck to all of us trying! Â;)
