Has anyone tried to propagate plants using oasis? I either read an article or saw it on a programme somewhere and wondered how well it worked if anyone's tried it? I am experimenting with some cuttings I took of Cornus dogwood - the bright red one... I can see lots of shoots starting but no roots as yet.




You will have to plant the whole piece in the ground to avoid root damage. You may then have a clump of cornus.

Thanks Doctorbob1. Do you think they're ready to plant out yet or should I keep them as they are for another month?

Yes, grow them on where they are, feed with a weak solution of Tomarite every two weeks. When the ground has warmed up (it may be more than a month in your area), plant out, any cuttings not started can be removed.
