How to make new rose, lavender, and rosemary plants from cuttings & mini-greenhouses. Some plants, like willow, make their own rooting hormones. If you soak willow branch cuttings in water, that infusion encourages rooting as much as expensive root hormone powder does.
Rosemary propagation - best done in late fall/early winter; cut 2.5 inch stems from new growth of an established plant, snip off the bottom leaves, dip the bottom 0.25 inch in rooting hormone and place in a container with equal amounts of peat moss and perlite. *Note: for established plants, let dry out between waterings.
