I have NEVER done cuttings before and John suggested making a thread. I have a willow on my property that I would like to propagate for cover, but I have NO idea what I am doing. I need someone to walk me thru this as if I am a 3rd grader. I need pics, small words and step by step instructions. I figure other trees I might be willing to try would be sycamore, cottonwood, willow and boxelder - these are all water loving trees that hold water. I need a "mentor" in this process that has some patience as I'm going to have a lot of stupid questions.
