    Has anyone had any luck rooting gardenia cuttings?
    My wife was wanting me to try, and not having experience with gardenias, I figured I would enlist advice from someone here with experience.
    Thanks!

    uncle Jake, The book I am reading on Propagation says that you can take softwood or semi hard wood cuttings in April thru August and root in greenhouse conditions. I am just beginning to get interested in this craft. Wondering about the possibilities of a home based nursery business (on a small scale). Susan
