It’s a busy week for us… digging water lines, installing drain pipes, making retaining walls and potting up our rooted cuttings.
Small Plants Like this Sell Like Crazy and in Many Cases You Can Find Buyers all over the Country that Will Buy from You. Just Put them in a Box and Send them Off. Nobody Coming to Your Home Ever.

You have taught me so much about rooting different types of plants. I go back and reread the information you have written to make sure I’m doing the correct steps to get the roots growing.
My next purchase is going to be pruners. Thought I would take a chance at winning a pair.
Thank you so much.
I have a ton of Rose of Sharon’s I tried rooting last June and about 40-50 of them took and are growing like a weed! They’ve grown about 10-15″ each. They are in a sand box, is it already to late in the season to put these in individual pots?
The box is just a 12″x12″ square with no bottom.
I also have about a dozen bougainvillea that I’d like to pot as well. I’m located in south Texas zone-9 Let me know what y’all think. Thanks!
If you can get them out of the sand without damaging roots you can still pot them. Pot them and put them in shade. See this https://mikesbackyardnursery.com/2016/03/pulling-rooted-cuttings-from-the-sand-propagation-bed/
Mike, I did some tri-colored beech cuttings late last Oct. Right now they look like they are budding out nicely.
I put them in four inch pots. When should I repot them, or should I. I really don’t expect to plant them for trees due to lack of space. Would they be a good sales item if I could get them to grow?
I live in Southern, Idaho not far from where cuttings were taken.
If you can get them to root they’d be awesome plants to sell. Don’t bother repotting until they are root bound in the containers they are in. Should be good for most of one growing season.
