It requires a long period of time to plant trees from cuttings before one realizes their first yield. In most cases it takes up to a year or more. The challenge is how to root cuttings since some plant roots don't root naturally. Some people have found a way of going around this by using the layering technique. Some people have found a way round this problem by using rooting hormones. Which product do you use or would you advise a gardener to purchase as a rooting enhancer?

I have used rooting powder. not sure the brand anymore, as I believe there was only one choice on the shelf. However, as I experimented with it, and was able to make two more callicarpia shrubs in this fashion, I came to realize, time is also important. So I prefer to go out and buy the plant /shrub/tree and move on.
