One month ago I set up an ‘AB test’ to learn if willow water helps cuttings take root.
The results are in. Neither group A or B have put out any roots. The purportedly helpful hormones in the willow water have had no impact on the dogwood twigs.
I’ll leave both vases as they are for another couple of weeks to see if anything changes.
Meanwhile, most of the seedlings are doing well.
On this gorgeous sunny day the seedlings have had their first taste of fresh air, with our cat Davina standing guard.
There’s going to be a lot of taking these seedlings out, and bringing them in again, to harden them off before they go outdoors full time. So I’m using higher sided trays which will hopefully reduce the droppage rate!
