Morning! Today I wanted to spend some time showing some more zoomed in photos highlighting just what's going in some of these cuttings. Hopefully to inspire, but also to demonstrate why you shouldn't be quick to toss out or dismiss a plant that doesn't have obvious signs of life.

Basil, mint, Euonymus, rhododendron, maple, strawberry... Overwintering my sage, and trying to propagate some rarish black bamboo from the neighbor. Wormwood seedlings in the front, and … Continue reading Preview of closet propagation station
