To the rear of our property is a 'heritage hedge' comprising rowan, hornbeam, field maple, hawthorn, sycamore,elder and common ash. Yesterday we had extremely heavy rain and all the trees were leaning over somewhat, however, by the time evening came all was well. this morning, we have very breezy conditions and went outside to find one very heavy ash branch bent over to the ground. We tried to lift it but couldn't, so we've had to take it off. We have now chopped it up and I have 3 very good 'stems' with good new leafage and I would love to get them rooted somehow. Is it possible, how would I do it and in pots/containers or back in the ground? Bearing in mind the terrible ash die-back, and the fact that our 5 ash are in rude health, thank goodness, please tell me this is possible and we can get 3 new trees from this!
