  • Plant propagation

    The most common form of plant propagation is digging and dividing, which is best done in early spring before new growth or in the fall before plants go dormant.
    Digging and dividing is great for herbaceous plants but those plants that are considered woody ornamentals do not divide as easily with a spade. In this case we can look to the technique of rooting out softwood cuttings from the mother plant.
    Greenhouses have stock plants that they maintain from year to year to provide the cuttings for each year’s new generation.
