    My gran used to walk around with a long dogs lead despite the fact she didn't have a dog.

    She could lasso a plant cutting from 3 yards away - which round hers was the length of most peoples front yard.

    Look what I found today VC. The hot & spicy oregano is flowering. Never noticed flowers on it before. I didn't notice it flowering when I took the cutting .

    What a great idea! I have taken a cutting this year in my local park, as I noticed the fantastic scent of a bush that is dotted about everywhere in the park. It's a mock orange, and it seems one of my cuttings have taken (I potted up the side shoots that I took off my cutting, but they died). Maybe next year I can send cuttings out to anyone who wants it!
    I also have...
    Rosemary - very, very hardy - it's survived a few harsh winters out there. Lovely flavour and nice gnarly stem now
    Bay - but they're fresh cuttings, so maybe best next year.
    Ivy, variegated
    Honeysuckle
    Passiflora
    Jasmine
    Kiwi
    Virginia creeper

    I would love to swap if it would be mutually beneficial for anyone. And if they don't mind the possibility of my hapless gardening leading their cuttings to an unfortunate end.

    I have
    viburnum - evergreen with white flowers and blue berries/pods
    spiraea - I believe it's called firelight. Red/orange new growth, green foliage in summer with pink flowers, reddish foliage again in autumn (deciduous)
    holly - yellow/green variegated, evergreen. So far growing slowly and steadily in a somewhat cramped/shaded space.
    yellow rose bushes - no idea the variety as they predate us (by quite a long way, I would guess). I think they're grafted on a rootstock and they're pretty happy growers. So, not sure if they might be overly vigorous from a cutting.

    I would be interested in
    lavender
    rosemary
    evergreen shrub that grows relatively quickly that could be maintained around 1–2 m tall

    Most of my knowledge of cuttings is based on internet searches. Feel free to let me know when you'd want the cutting taken and the type you prefer.

    Default newbie interested in cuttings swap

    Hello all, just joined but keen to start cutting swaps if its possible to 'jump the three month queue?'

    Anyhoo, I'll put it out there, and see if anyone is interested.

    I can offer:

    Rosemary
    Honeysuckle
    Clematis
    Winter Jasmine
    Comfrey (root cuttings)
    Willow
    Strawberries

    I am looking for:

    I have plenty more, but just testing the water on my first posting before jumping in fully!
    Looking forward to trading
