Good afternoon everyone I need so help and advice again please.
I have the most beautiful Hydrangea in full bloom in my back garden, in shades of pink and blue but at a spot where it isn't really seen and I'd like to take a cutting from it and plant that down somewhere we can actually see it.
Can you please tell me how/best way to take a cutting?
Thanks in advance, Heather
This is the time to take cuttings of the ones you like.
Use the soft 7- 10cm tips of the non flowering shoots, cut through at the leaf joint; in gritty compost they will root under polythene, out of the sun.
Good luck for spring time plants.
Thank you so much Helen. I wasn't even sure if this was the time to do it so you've answered that as well, Heather.
I root the in water, very easy.
Thanks Blairs now I have more than one idea to go on so that's great. One thing though, if I put a cutting in water, could I say keep it in a shed over winter? Or would that be too dark and dry?
Can I split a Yucca plant. It is about 13 years old.
Is it possible to grow from seed.
Sorry P cant help you but your question has been on here a long time with no answer so i'm responding to bump you back up the list in the hope this will get seen and someone can help you. Good luck
