Propagation - Making New Plants from Old

Propagation • Cuttings • Seeds • Bulbs • Layering • Plant Exchange

In addition to purchasing plants, you can use existing plants (your own, or those of fellow gardeners) to grow new plants via propagation - using cuttings.


You can split pot-bound plants, put cut stems first in water to root and then in soil (philodendron); put cut leaf stems in water or wet soil (begonia, jade, African violets).

Growing from seed

Growing from seed takes time and space; but it can be satisfying to watch your start-from-scratch garden grow. Sometimes the only way to own a rare plant is to acquire the seed. After sowing, watch for sprouts,and thin them out. Repot in small containers when several leaves have appeared.
