Hmmph. Not sure why, perhaps they didn’t enjoy being snowed on, but several of the remaining stems of ceanothus cuttings went brown and were duly removed, Interestingly it was mainly those around the edge of the pot, so perhaps chill was a factor.


Those that remain look a little brown in places too, so my hopes of any of these rooting are diminishing with each passing week. It is now seven months give or take since I took the cuttings, so given there have been no roots, these have survived for quite a while looking mostly green.


If you are considering propagating ceanothus by cuttings, my advice is now a resounding “don’t bother!”. If you want another one, just buy one!

I’ll be back soon with more propagation malarkey.
