Hydrangea Propogation Question?
Hello Everyone -
I'm making my first attempt at propagating Hydrangea cuttings and had a couple of questions. The method I used was based upon instruction I received from various Internet sites:
Clipped a 6" branch, cut off lower leaves and left two up top, and sliced them in 1/2. I placed the cutting in a shaded pot with moist soil w/root tone, and covered with another cup.
I now have about 7 pots sitting in shade and I'm hoping they root. In the event that they do, what's the next step? It's August, I live on Long Island (Zone 7). How long should they stay in the pot? How often should they be watered? Do I plant prior to the winter? Does anyone have some suggestions ? Thanks in advance!
