We've got our eye on taking a cutting off a friend's mulberry tree: we're massive mulberry fans but it's so hard to find them around these days! Problem is, none of us know how to do it properly. Usually we just cut a branch off a tree cleanly and slot it in a jar of water... none of them have ever survived this way. So we tried sticking them straight into soil: the only plant this has worked with is a very hardy species of decorative shrub. Anyhow, so I'm thinking we're cutting it wrong somehow... anyone got any advice on how to do it properly?
