Propagation of Hydrangea Stalks
I have a \"propagation\" question for someone who knows and understand the process. While cutting back my hydrangeas this week, I accidentally removed several what appeared to be \"dead\" branches from my vantage point. However, when I pulled them out away from the base of the bush, I noticed several small leaves growing at the base of these branches, along with others that appeared dead, but once the brown exterior fell away,underneath I found a green living stalk. Can I \"re-root\" these stalks in \"Take Root\" Powder and place the bottom end in good potting soil, or should I just place them in a clear glass container and hope for roots to form without dirt? In the meantime, I have wrapped the stalks in wet newspaper, and am trying to keep them alive. Thanks!
