My first broken branch

Celadine fell over today and broke a branch off of my Bonnie Fox. I'm going to attempt to callus and root it but it's only about 5 inches. Wish me luck!

Funny thing... that Celadine has been in that same spot all summer and never once fell over. Not until I sat Bonnie Fox beside her. Guess she wanted that spot all to herself.

I just got Jim Little's book from Amazon and noticed a picture of 2 3 inch cuttings he's rooting in perlite. So I guess it can be done. Good luck.

I hate it when they get jealous and protective of "thier" spot!! LOL

Oh no Mona! Didn't I read somewhere that Laura and Stu rooted some very small or funky sticks? So I totally think you can do it. As long as you don't let me go near it you should be fine! ;)
