A nice long line of spirea for the side of my garden would look beautiful and keep grass from growing in, but I can't bring myself to buy that many bushes at the nursery. That's a lot of money.
Instead I've taken cuttings and unearthed a bottle of rooting hormone I bought in 1995. It may be that nothing comes of this experiment. Or I'll get some roots. That would be nice.
And while I had out the pots and dirt and such I took some cuttings from the Sarah Van Fleet rose. My bush is nine feet high and bears hundreds of spicy pink flowers and the deer won't touch it. Some more of that would be truly nice.
