With a great sigh of relief, the first day of spring has come and was a welcome sight with the warm winds and longer, sunny days to melt the banks of snow almost overnight.
If you wintered your favourite geranium and would like to try your hand to propagate some cuttings. Then it’s fairly easy and nothing to lose since there’s not a whole lot of gardening to be done outdoors yet. Start by taking a 6″ cutting and removing all but the top leaves. Place the cuttings in rooting hormone to quicken the root development and place in moist soilless products like vermiculite or perlite. Once the roots are present, you can pot your cuttings until the weather is favourable to plant outside. Many other plants can be propagated by cuttings, like shrubs, roses, trees, and even herbs such as rosemary. To continue, please click on the link below.
