On 13/03/2011 I wrote the following:
" I bought a blackcurrant bush from a garden centre last November. It
was in a pot, and before I planted it, I pruned the three branches to
about two inches above ground. The three cuttings were about eight
inches long, so I cut them in half, and just for curiosity I planted the
six cuttings with a bit of bonemeal. The bush I bought is now doing
quite well, and I noticed that out of the six cuttings, two had tiny
buds showing. These two are now showing foliage. I don't want to disturb
them, but does this mean that they have rooted. "
I received a couple of answers saying that they had probably rooted.
Although the bush I bought is doing well, the two cuttings appear to be
dying. They are planted close to the bought one, so the soil is the
same. Has anyone any idea what could have gone wrong. I gave them a
little watering, but not too much as the ground was pretty damp to begin
