How do I get to the next stage from cuttings to fully grown plant
Hi, I seem to always find myself at a big unknown when it comes to cuttings and whether I should be pruning them, in the first year/second year to encourage more shoots.
I have numerous cuttings this year which have taken (St John's Wort, honeysuckle, Philadelphus, dogwood etc), I'm a bit stuck as to what to do now they have shoots. The St Jon's Wort is took about three months ago, and there is a single side shoot, coming off the original cutting, which is now about 6 inches long. Should I leave it, or pinch out the tip to encourage more shoots?
Similar with the others, not sure when I should prune - if at all in first few years?
Advice and/or references would be appreciated.
