First softwood success!

Four of the six elderberry cuttings I took earlier this spring rooted! I’m so pleased. I’ve never had any luck with cuttings before!

Congrats! What was your technique?

2-liter Coke bottles with the top cut off for containers, Napa Floor Dri for medium, and rooting hormone.
I potted them up last night and will let them grow the rest of the summer. They will eventually go against the fence to block the view of the house being built next door.
I have some aronia too, but it’s not looking good.

On the aronia cuttings, I can see some tiny roots through the clear plastic. Should I pot up now or let them grow some more? Fertilize?
