Plant Nursery

It's nothing fancy, 
just lots of mis-matched pots 
that have seen better days...
but it makes a good plant
nursery for cuttings and 
seedlings, and such. 

Close enough to the house 
to remind me to water them,
and to watch their progress. 

I've had good success 
propagating this way. 

The soil is a mixture of potting soil, compost, and horse manure.  
When I get the whim to root a cutting, I just stick it in the pot. 
I'd say I've had about 90% success w/ no rooting hormone or anything.
We've gained several shrubs this way...basically freebies!
