new plant from cutting
We just returned from England. I was able to bring a piece of a hydrangea that I found lying under the mother plant at Holyrood Palace in Edinburgh. (truly...my husband is sure I snapped off a piece of it. tempting sometimes, but I really did just see this lying there, broken off) I kept it moist, wrapped in damp paper towels all the trip home. It is a bit of a woody piece, but had lots of leaves. I cut off two smaller and younger sprigs, as well as removing all the drooping leaves from the original piece and smaller ones I cut off. There are two small roots starting from that larger, woody stem. I wanted to ask for advice on the best possible way to get these babies off to being new plants. Obviously, they are very special cuttings, and I have never tried to propagate a hydrangea from cuttings before. Any advice/suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
