You can easily propagate oriental poppies by taking root cuttings. They make perfect candidates for this propagation method as it exploits the plant's propensity to reproduce itself from every scrap of root left behind when plants are moved. Once
, I thought the longer the root the easier they would establish, thanks. Thanks everyone,I will give it a try. I have 6 plants I propagated in water last summer which are doing absolutely brilliantly. I have also potted up 4 cuttings earlier
let's all boast about successful propagation,as we all feel proud when we do it so let us share and compare. i will start by saying i have taken sedum cuttings for the second year from emerging shoots.last year i took stem tip cuttings from bowles
I grew Lamium and Ajuga in pots last year and I would like to propagate them. All the books seem to say that if they grow in the ground they produce their own offsets and therefore they should be divided. As they are in containers can I take
sowing times will apply.What are you sowing, seeds need differing heats and propagators usually have a standard cooler setting, a thermostat gives more scope.What exactly did the GC advise when selling you sand and grit and did you get the sowing compost

The processes of increasing the number of plants, including grafting, division, cuttings, seeding, budding and air layering.
I live in rental accommodation and we are not permitted to lift or plant anything in our tiny cottage garden. Last year I hard pruned what I thought was a dead tree, right down to the ground leaving about 10inchs of a trunk and left it. I made a nice little corner rockery around ...
Usually I'm successful taking cuttings but......I cannot propagate my new Guinea impatiens. I remember someone saying a while back that he or she has successfully taken cuttings. Tried in water and in mpc but no luck. Was hoping for a good batch
and there were leaves further up teh stems. I always wait till mid April as we get heavy late frosts that can kill the wee buds left behind on the stumps. As for propagating, Midwinter Fire suckers freely in my garden so I have new plants to give away every year
