Why do cuttings have to be inserted into compost at the edge of the pot? Does this increase the chance of success, if so, how?
I have had mixed success by planting in centre of pot!
Hmmm! I think there are two reasons......one compost is bit drier there so less chance for it to rot. Also I think roots "feel" swamped in centre of pots; they like to "feel" the edge of the pot. On a practical level there is more space around the edge of the pot ...a third reason
I certainly have greater success with cuttings around the edge....sometimes insert odd one in the middle but it rarely takes
