Maybe some of you like to try getting cuttings to root in water...things like pussy willow, azaleas, and many other shrubs, trees, bushes. I read many years ago to add some willow branches to the rooting water and that will give a better rooting result than just the plain water. I clip off some willow tree limbs and add them and have had good turnout doing so. A friend on another forum said she smashes the willow stems a little with a hammer before adding them and it works better, she thinks.
Happy rooting if you try this, =)!
