Itoigawa Shimpaku Cuttings




I took these from my itoigawa Shimpaku I got from Evergreen Gardenworks last year. It’s sitting in a pond basket growing out. It has a secondary trunk that needed to slowly be reduced while letting the main trunk line grow. It seemed like a good opportunity for cuttings. These are mostly shorter cuttings. I took another batch of slightly longer ones. All the cuttings were from strongly growing branch ends. I dipped them all in rooting hormone then watered them in. Assuming they take, they should make for a good supply of future material.
