Dappled Willow, Hakuro Nishiki, is a great plant to grow and sell for a number of reasons. One, they are extremely colorful and eye catching in the early spring. They grow fast and make an excellent privacy screen. They also do well in wet areas. They do well in full sun or partial shade and are hardy in zones 4 through 9.
But this post and video are about more than that. I did this video because I want to show you how easy it is to start a fun little business in a really small area of your yard. In this video, I show you how to work in an area no bigger than a dining room table (I’ve been teaching this to people all over the country for years here).

In the video I am doing Dappled Willow cuttings as hardwood cuttings and I explain hardwood cuttings in detail here, https://mikesbackyardnursery.com/2015/01/easy-winter-time-plant-propagation-can-home/ and here, and this; https://mikesbackyardnursery.com/2016/09/hardwood-cuttings-winter-of-20152016/
I also promise in the video to share this page on how to make these Homemade Propagation Flats.
Enjoy the video!

90 days later when the cuttings are rooted.
In the video I am discussing Dapple Willow from cuttings, I just looked and I have not yet done a post about Dapple Willow with spring photos so I need to do that. But on this page, Our Member Roger Higgins shows us How He Grows Dappled Willow from Cuttings into Tree Form Plants.
As I mentioned in the video you can easily sell rooted cuttings and liners of all kinds of plants in our members area. Just pack them up and ship them to your customers. You will be astonished when you not only see how much stuff is sold in Our Members Area, but how fast many of these things sell.
I didn’t mention it in the video but I also planted out a bunch of Ruby Slippers Oakleaf Hydrangea that I will be doing as cuttings. We have one member that does a lot of these and and as soon as he puts them up for sale he sells out. I’ve bought from him a number of times.
