    I had some scales off a lily bulb a couple of months ago and put them into a pot of damp vermiculite today I potted on 5 small lilies from them, quite pleased with that as I was going to throw them out and they are from a named lily bulb,,,, all I need to do now is find the name

    Willow roots easily in a bucket of water. I have grown several bushes this way. Apparently the willow produces a growth hormone; hence the old trick of putting an aspirin tablet in a vase of flowers to keep the flowers alive longer. Aspirin is derived from salicylic acid which in turn is found in willow cuttings.
