Gardening Tips

Rose and Plant Propagation

Propagating your favorite plants can be very gratifying. It is a good way to get more plants and of saving money. There are different ways of propagating plants by seeds, air layering, tip layering, leaf cuttings but stem cuttings is one of the most popular ways. Master Gardener Don Hanson recently conducted a rose propagation workshop, which was very informative and inspiring. Don has been a master gardener of Greater New Orleans for many years and has been dedicated to caring for the roses at the Botanical Gardens in City Park. The techniques he taught us were simple and can be applied to other plants besides roses.
