I want to make more blueberry bushes, and azalea's from the ones I already have growing. How can I do this? I'm thinking something like cutting off a branch and putting it in a growth hormone and sticking it the ground.
=== === ===

Here is what I've done with azaleas and rhodendrons.
I have buried a low-level branch, uncut from the shrub, with some dirt and then placed a brick or rock on the dirt mound to keep things in place. Then, one year later, I snip off that branch which now has its own roots and plant this "cutting" elsewhere. I water this new "cutting" frequently.
Works for me -- all the time.
Personal pride in plant propagation.
