Most plants you might want to grow can be propagated free from cuttings. If you bought the same plant, chances are it was produced from a cutting so why not do it yourself and save heaps of money. This is how easy it is to do....

  • Take cuttings from the tips of non-flowering stems.
  • Make the cutting about 10cm long, cutting just below a set of leaves.
  • Strip the lower leaves and cut remaining leaves in half crosswise.
  • Dip the cut end into hormone rooting powder or gel. You donít have to do this but it helps.
  • Place the cuttings in pots or punnets full of moist seed raising mix.
  • Cover with clear or translucent plastic held away from the cuttings.
  • Keep moist and when you see new growth the cuttings have taken root.
  • Gently dig up each rooted cutting and pot into its own small pot.
  • Grow them on until big enough to transplant into the garden.

For a more detailed, illustrated guide to taking soft-tip cuttings, get a copy of the May 2005 edition of Gardens & Outdoor Living magazine from newsagents or supermarkets.
