LL, you are depressing me ! I have tried for years, to get a cutting to 'take', and all I get is a tray or pot full of potential compost twigs. I try store bought cutting stuff, make up my own, adding grit, agricultural sand, dipping into rooting compounds, all the miracle growing compounds, and the now inevitable result is, compost !
I think that there are some who are blessed with green hands. I am cursed with 'for cabbages only' hands ! Still, it's fun to dig, for digging sake.
