you can always find out how to propagate by cuttings, but how do you get those cuttings into a bulky healthy plant? Silly question I know.
I tried cuttings for the first time last year with aster Monch and I was so pleased they survived I just planted them out but they are leggy and I'm wondering if I should have pinched them out when they started growing as a cutting. Although i wasn't wanting to as it seemed a shame to cut off the new growth.
I've also found there are lots of little shoots at the base of the cutting coming up under the soil but they don't seem to survive, so wondering what I can do about those, or what I am doing wrong
could really do with more info out there on what you do with cuttings, seedlings, etc once they have got past the initial bit of growth. Seems to be a gap in info there
thanks for any advice you can share.
