I want to grow a hedge to get some privacy from the neighbours above us. I saw this video about Oleander that can make a great hedge. I had never thought of Oleander before, even though we have 2 growing up in the garden and 2 way down the back yard.

Toward the end of November 2020, I took softwood cuttings below a node (just like the lady explains in the video). I cut off excess leaves and then put the cuttings into a jar of water where I left it on the window sill in filtered light for 3 weeks.

After 3 weeks, some of the cuttings began showing signs of roots forming. I couldn't believe it. How easy was that! 

Pink Oleander Cuttings from sill to root took 3 weeks

I potted them 18th Dec 2020. Transferred to garden on   . . . . .

 In August, prune Oleander. Do not remove more than one 3rd of the bush. This will encourage growth. Remove all debris. Have this done by mid September at the latest. 

I hope to add  more photos many years later
