I am happy to say that I planted one of my Chrysanthimum cuttings today. It's so cool to see roots on that little baby. I wish I hadn't lost track of whether it was a yellow or a bronze one but I did. From that bunch of cuttings I had 2 out of 9 root and grow. That's better than the seeds did. I didn't get any sprouts from that.

I want to start my own butterfly bush from cuttings, would softwood cuttings work for this?

I just got in the mail a box full of vigna caracalla cuttings from Colorado, they look pretty healthy except the blooms have all fallen off. I am going to give this a try - I have a fresh bag of potting soil to use.

I had read on davesgarden that somebody else in a colder zone takes cuttings every fall and keeps their vine "going" that way.

Here's hoping.

sibyl, I would think cleaning your knife (or preferrably razor blade) with rubbing alcohol may work more to your advantage. I don't have a lot of cutting experience, but I would think an Exacto style blade would probably work well. I can't wait to start attempting some cuttings this coming spring!
