Hi,
I can't seem to get the search engine on Dave's loaded tonight so I'll post this question here. I have a rhodie planted last summer which is about 30" tall. A branch broke off and I trimmed the end and stuck it in water. I'd like to take cuttings off that branch (which looks gorgeous right now!) and root them. I've never done this- how do I proceed?

Thanks!

Here's a google search engine for DG you might try until you get an answer. Maybe you haven't seen it, I like it a lot:

Thanks claypa. I tried typing in 'starting Rhodadendrons from cuttings' but all it gave me were articles about cutting them to the ground.

I tried just 'rhododendrons cuttings' and got a few... there may not be much here though.

Wow claypa thank you! I followed that link and read the thread- found a link to the official rhodie society and there they had an article with step by step instructions! I copied that into my Word program to print out later.

Thank you very much!
