The method of rooting a cutting from these would be the same as for most shrubs, or trees. You can use synthetic hormones, or you can make your own. My recipe uses about half a tsp. of honey, a crushed, uncoated aspirin tab, and a few drops of HOT water. Just enough water to mix the ingredients into a sticky, and well-mixed paste. Dip the cut in into the mix, and plant into some light potting mix, such as peat moss or coconut fibers. Wet slightly, and keep covered for a week or so.

Thank you,
Please break down the method of obtaining a cutting. I have not had a clear picture of how that is done. I need the basic information to get started. I thank you for the instructions on treating, planting and follow up while rooting happens. I just don’t know where to start. I am not Familiar with rooting trees or shrubs. I am only familiar with houseplants and bulbs and flowers from seed. Sorry for my ignorance but I need the 1st grade version:-)
Thanks again!
