Getting Back to my Roots

When I trimmed the bougainvillea HERE, Issy over at Swimming on Dry Land 
    asked about rooting it. Brilliant. I had to. More paper cups please!

You will need:
1. Paper seed cups with potting soil
2. Rooting hormone
3. Clippers
4. A cup of water

Clip a woody stemmed healthy branch about 8 inches long just below a leaf. Strip any leaves or twigs for about 3 to 4 inches.
Dip the stem in water, then rooting hormone to coat to just above where the stem will sit in the dirt. 
Poke it in the soil.

Yeah, that's it. Mist with water daily, and you have
FREE shrubs.

What a great thrifty solution! Hmm, I think I need to brainstorm a few different free shrub sources!

A walk in the park or woods with clippers in your pocket...did I say that?
