Root Starting Question
A VERY dear friend of mine in the MWC area gave me cuttings of 2 types of thyme. One is the creeping type that I've searched all over to find. The other is what she called "lavendar thyme". I desperately would love to grow each of these. To have her share this with me is so important. She's semi-retired from Boeing and has been a mentor of mine for almost 20 years. I really, really, really want to keep these going. How do I do it?
I have powdered rooting hormone. Do I use that? I suspect so because none of the healthy branches have apparent "roots"...although she told me to just stick them in the dirt and they would grow. I'm keeping them for the "thyme" being with their bare cuts in moist paper towels, and then into a gallon zip-lock as closed as I can with out totally cutting off any air. Any advice? Thnx in advance.
