Currently in Cora’s garden there are 2 sections of sticks stuck in pots. All bougainvillea from when we did the spring trim the front bougies (as mom calls them).
When I first got home these sticks in a pot made me laugh. I would ask what they were and if they were dead. They are just of funny looking to have in the someone’s garden.
Well, my mom takes the trimmings and give them a good soak in water then sticks them in some rootone and put it in a pot a soil with rock for support. It takes a long time to root but it does happen.
I have to give it to her, she has a green thumb as she can make a stick with rocks and sprout leaves and flowers.
