Please grow !!

Last night, I cut about six inches off numerous branches of the Turk’s Cap in the neglected yard. While the plants, in planters, were dead the Turk’s Cap has survived, and thrived, with limited water and fertilizer. That’s exactly the type of plant I want adorning my front and side yard. Just out of curiosity, I cut some about ten or twelve inches long to see if they, too, would root. The Internet instructions said “four to six-inch cuttings.”

Getting started
