Not bad for a few old twigs, dumped in a jar of water.
No wonder there are so many trees in Norway, if they're that easy to grow.
'She who likes to be proved right', has put a couple of twigs from her favourite bush in water now. I'm not laying any bets against the success of that horticultural effort.
