cottonwood pre-bonsai!!....???

Post  monte on Sun Nov 11, 2012 10:58 pm

Hi, anyone tried cottonwood yet?
Here's some cuttings I just collected, the fat end is the top of the original plant, the result of constant browsing & beaver chewing. The skinny end is the root. Of course they will be planted upside down as shown in the photos.
Cottonwood grows roots from large cuttings very easily so I have no doubt they will survive and grow. Developing and maintaining a good branch structure is the unknown for me now. It will be fun to try though!
For now the cuttings have simply been buried in the garden, come spring they will be potted up and we'll see what happens.
