I pruned one of my Blue Spruces today, and am trying my luck at rooting them as cuttings. :)

I did the other two today,

they were not as bushy as the first one I did, but now I have the other flat I'm trying to start the cuttings in full to! :)

Hopefully I will have a good forest of them a few years down the road, which with even a small survival rate with this many cuttings, and I should have a reasonable start! :)

All three trees are of the Colorado Blue Spruce variety, but one is very blue, one is blue green, and the third is mostly green, so I should have a good selection of the colors of them to mix in for variety, like a natural forest of them! :D

The bluest one is my best tree of the three all over, it has been gaining the most hight, been the bushiest, and has the prettiest color. :)

If they take root,

I think I'll plant them close together, and thin them when they get big enough for Christmas trees, I will probably make gifts of the Christmas trees if they are presentable.

I took a good close look at,

the cuttings this morning, and they look in good shape still, but the growing medium is still froze, so no way to tell if they are rooting in.
