Can I plant frangipani cuttings that don't have roots

The cuttings were taken about six weeks ago, and have been kept in a dry place since then.

Hi Russell,

Normally the time to take cuttings is during the winter months. You have allowed the cutting to dry out sufficiently so now you can either pot the cuttings into pots or place them in the ground where they are to grow. If you are using pots, pick a good quality potting mix that is free draining. Place the pots in a warm, protected spot and be careful not to overwater. If planting straight into the ground, ensure again that the soil is free draining and firm the soil in around the cutting to keep it in place. Place some much around the cutting to keep the soil moist but not too wet. Once the spring comes, the cuttings roots will begin to take off. Enjoy having this beautifully perfumed plant in your garden.
