What's the best way to propagate a vibernum bodnantense?
Hardwood cuttings now. It may grow from soft wood cuttings but I've never tried it.
Mine sends out suckers a about 6 inch from the original plants. I cut them off with a sharp spade and replant.
Mine sends out suckers that are right up against the parent and I can't get them out, making a very tight bush and difficulty pruning out the old stems.
That may be due to the high brick and concrete content of my soil
Self layers too!
Will give it a go this weekend - love plants for free!
Mine's too upright to self layer, I'll give it some help
Thanx all. Haven't got a parent plant myself so hardwood cuttings will suit me better. Wish me luck!
I'm sure you'll do fine HB
Was tidying up my aunt's borders yesterday and guess what was lurking behind the shed - yup, in all it's fragrant glory. So have a couple of layers on the go ????
That's great HB
