I have the desire to do some propagating this winter. What is best, easiest to do now , late january in zone 6?thanks, nancy
i suspect you are not getting many responses .. besides mid winter GWeb depression ...
is that we have no idea what experience or supplies or capabilities you have ...
w/o a greenhouse.. and misting procedures.. etc .. it might be very hard ...
how about some more facts about your setup .... etc ...
You can root houseplants all year around. Ken's right - we don't have enough information to know what to tell you.
Here are some that are very easy to root from hardwood cuttings with minimal effort. A cold frame or similar frost-free environment would be helpful.
Buddleja (butterfly bush)
some Ilex (holly)
Parthenocissus tricuspidata (boston ivy)
Punica granatum (pomegranate)
Thuja occidentalis (arboratae)
If you can provide bottom heat, many more possibilities would open up.
brandon7 is right, they're all pretty easy. Basically most woody shrubs do well.
Just google how to do the cuttings and you're golden.
I prefer to layer vitis (grape) myself.
If you can not root willow & hydrangea, then you are not doing it right.
