Propagating Cuttings and Dividing Plants


Posted on: January 8th, 2013 by Michele Sokoloff

Central Texas gardener John Dromgoole, for Backyard Basics, teaches all he knows about propagating cuttings and dividing plants in this 5 minute video.

Watch how he takes cuttings from the various plants and places them in a 50/50 potting soil and perlite mix. He identifies plants such as geraniums, coleus, wandering jew, impatiens, strobilanthes and begonias as good candidates for cuttings. But the message John sends out is that taking cuttings from any plant and trying to propagate them is worth a shot.
