Osmanthus fragrans have finally rooted
Thanks to a member here (george??), I have finally rooted a fragrant tea olive. I tried all summer using softwood cuttings. A few months back, I found a thread, which escapes me at the moment, saying that a heel cutting would be the best. In early August, I made 6 cuttings. One survived. I used no mist, but did use a small propagation chamber made of a wood box, a plastic storage bin on top, and a mixture of peat and sand. I used Rootone when I stuck the cuttings.
Thanks to whomever the original poster of that thread was. I had tried everything including air layering. I was worried that I would have to purchase the plants I want to fill in my back woods.
