Hydrangeas can be propagated from cuttings in the summer months.
Here are the 6 steps for doing so:
- Take 4-6 inch cuttings from the tips of non-flowering shoots.
- Remove the leaves from the lower half of the cutting.
- Dip the cut end of the cutting in the rooting hormone.
- Plant the cutting in a pot filled with moist, well-draining soil.
- Cover the pot with a plastic bag and place it in a location with indirect sunlight.
- Keep the soil moist and monitor the cutting for new growth. It may take several weeks to several months for the cutting to root.
It’s important to keep the soil moist but not waterlogged, as this can lead to rot. You may also want to consider using a rooting hormone, which can help to promote root growth.
