Is this a good time to take cuttings? I figured that after they bloom they would root more readily. Is the new growth the best?
Yes they root easily from soft wood taken at this time. Al
Do you recommend routing in water or soil?
I start almost everything in a perlite mix. One exception is brugmansias which start easily in water which eliminates misting or tenting. Because I have some brugs in the water already I have added weigelia prunings to the same water. I will soon find out if they will start in water. You can tell I am lazy. Al
