Santolina cuttings

Here are my santolina cuttings. (click here for plant they came off) They are cut about 2 inches each and literally just put into sand, to encourage the roots to grow. The sand is moist and I will keep it that way by spraying the cuttings every few days. The first 24 hours were touch and go - drooping sadly waiting for a better day. But this morning I visited them and look at them - propped up and almost on their way. I will nurse them for a few more days - but I am quietly confident this could actually work!

  1. I've just taken some cuttings this morning so hope mine look as good as yours in a few days. It might have been more helpful if I had Googled to see how other folk did it BEFORE I did mine!
