I have 3 mini roses acquired from Jose over in Tenerife . At the weekend I decided to take a few cutting to increase my stock. I took a cutting about a week ago and popped it into the humidity layer I put some of my accents on and this was the result. I guest it worked.
I took cuttings from all three roses and potted them into a mix of fine cat litter and fine pumice. Well see how it goes. The parent rose in this kusamono planting is very vigorous as you can see from the roots.
I always like to take cutting of the harder to find varieties and this year is no exception. This is the bench in the greenhouse. I have Cork Bark Elm, Chinese Elm Micro, Fuji Cherry, Zelkova, Trident Maple, Japanese Maple, Satsuki Azalea, Korean Lilac and a rare type of Flowering Current that I hope to show you soon.
A full tray of cuttings taken from the little broom Cork Bark Elm back in April.
This is exactly how that Cork Bark Forest planting started off back in 2001.
