TIME TO TAKE CUTTINGS – FIRST WEEK IN AUGUST 2009

This is a good week for taking cuttings of any herbs in your own garden or the garden of someone else, provided they don’t mind having cuttings taken! Ask first! Taking cuttings is a very economical way of increasing your plant stock.

Rosemary or sage, or  indeed ivy in my case, are easily propogated from cuttings. Where I’ve cleared mange tout peas leaves me with good space for pots to be located  outdoors and with soil in which I can leave cuttings to root over the next few weeks.

Take a look back at a post from February, where I demonstrate how to propogate some everlasting cabbage.
