Rooted Branch: Best Time To Plant
Last spring, I tried to root a branch from a White Ash tree. The roots werenÃ¯Â¿Â½t quite filling up the five gallon bucket it was in, so to "help" get it acclimated to soil a friend suggested adding potting soil to the water. Eventually, enough soil was added to make a nice damp mixture. Apparently, it didnÃ¯Â¿Â½t like that and in about a month it was dead.
About two months ago, I tried it again. The 5 gallon bucket isnÃ¯Â¿Â½t quite filled with roots. IÃ¯Â¿Â½m not sure when I should plant it. IÃ¯Â¿Â½m afraid my timing is off as I feel it needs more roots but now the water is freezing.
What do you suggest?
