Propagation

Standard

“Which thou wilt propagate, to have it pressed.”  Shakespeare-Romeo and Juliet.

Today, in our Master Gardener’s class we were outside and learned different ways to extend our plants. We learned different ways to divide or to make new plants from cuttings from the parent stock. Fun.

First picture is a begonia that is to be rooted by a stem with only one leaf. The cup on the right is a coleus leaf that is simply laid on top of the soil, but pressed down so all parts make contact. When it begins to root-it will push the leaf away.
