Dogwood take 3-4 inch curring june-Aug apply 0.3% IBA Rooting hormone stick in well drained soil & mist
Crape Myrtle take cuttings of firm NEW growth apply 0.1% IBA Rooting hormone stick in well drained soil & mist takes 21-100 days to root

Thank you for the tips George.... I dont have the IBA rooting hormone.. Will olivia's cloning gel work 0.08(N) 0.15(PO) 0.09(KO) I also have a powder (Rootone) it has 0.20 of naphthaleneacetamide and 4.04 of thiram ?? I looked up the IBA, it seems like a good product. kinda expensive though... thanks again......Greg

I always use IBA & therefore can predict the results. Rootone will also work well.
