Butterfly Bush Cuttings Making Progress

Butterfly Bush Cuttings Making Progress

Things are looking good for my butterfly bush cuttings. So far none have succumbed to damping off. Only one lost any leaves. One good sign of a cutting is when new growth starts to develop. As you can see on the closest cutting that new growth is starting to sprout. This usually means that roots have emerged! I’ll leave them in the pot for a couple more weeks then check the root systems. If the roots are ready I’ll pot them up into some small pots and keep the new growth trimmed through the winter to encourage more roots. If everything goes well they should be ready to plant in the spring.
