How do you take cuttings from plants?

Posted: 22/06/2014 at 11:14

Yes, it's perfectly possible to take cuttings of most hardy plants without a greenhouse although a cold frame is useful.  

Starting off with lavender is a good idea - lots of info here 

Tell us what else you have in your garden and we can make some more suggestions about cuttings that are relatively easy - you'll soon have more plants than you know what to do with

Hi techiebabe - you can't cut & paste pics onto this forum, but if you click on the tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post you can upload pics from a pc.

Sadly it doesn't work for phones .... yet

I don't know that one Fidget - it's very well named if the colour reproduction on the link is accurate 

What to do?

When you say 'bare root' I take it that it's now been planted in a pot or at least planted somehow   Any tree with bare roots at this time of year is unlikely to survive

Spotted burnet?

How lovely - haven't seen any for years!  I once saw  dozens on a large expanse of ragwort on the dunes at Walberswick - never forgotten the sight

That's just what I do - I know some people use it more frequently.

Don't know the variety - the colour's like the Common mullein, but the leaves are downier and it does look like a more refined plant - I'm sure someone will know it ...
