Dip cutting end like roses, sand cherries, sage into rooting hormone then just stick them in moistened sandy soil until they take or just bury a bit of the bottom branches and they'll root without hormone. I started using rooting hormone about 11 years ago and noticed a big difference. Making a little lengthwise nick in soft bark cuttings seems to help as well. To root a larger cuttings I nick the branch 3/4 the way around not cutting it off the parent, dab on hormone powder water and then wrap a plastic baggie with soil bandage around the wound tying the two ends with twine and check it next year to see if it takes (usually does)
