Red Twig dogwood (Cornus sericea) and Bloodtwig dogwood (Cornus sanguinea) and many willows are easy to root by simply sticking cuttings in the ground this time of year. These plants are not always long-lived in our Southeastern landscapes so having replacements ready can be important. Roots should form as soil warms in the spring.
I like sticking cuttings in the ground about 4 -6 inches with about a foot above.
Has anyone else done this? What is your method? Don’t forget to pay attention to what end is up!
