Bouturez your favorite plants!
Cuttings are the best way to reproduce exactly your favorite plants.
Starting in July, you can get started in the art of plant propagation.
The geraniums and pelargoniums are among the plants that bouturent well, and are ideal for beginners. Dilute short cuttings, that is to say, the buds of the year when they reach 3-4 cm. Place them against the inner wall of terracotta pots for your plants. This ensures a good recovery as it ensures good drainage to the plant. Transplant your cuttings in a new pot as soon as they have roots and think about protecting them from freezing this winter to enjoy the summer.

If your friends envy your Lavatera shrub, prepare their cuttings! After the first heavy bloom finished, your plant will produce side shoots. Take them when they reach 4-5 cm long. Remove the terminal buttons and transplant them either directly into the ground if it is mild or against the walls of terracotta pots. In two months, the cuttings will be ready for transplanting to the garden.
You can also share your oleander. Take young side shoots and incise their base longitudinally. Fill a container of water with a piece of charcoal to maintain its purity. Finish it off with a tense stretch film. Prick the cuttings so that their base does not touch the bottom. Place all in the shade. Rooting is in two months. Transplant then potted in a rich compost.

And why not roses?
Once broken in the art of cutting, launch yourself at the end of the summer in the cuttings of roses. Choose healthy roses. Once the new shoots are firm at their base, draw long cuttings of 6-8 cm with a heel (base width) on défleuris branches. Delete some of the leaflets. Insert the cuttings in a draining substrate of sand and loam in equal parts. Water lightly. Cover the pot with a transparent plastic bag to create a humid atmosphere and place it in a shady spot in the garden. The root application at least six weeks. Repot your cuttings and place them in the shelter of a chassis. Plant the following spring.
