Plant Propagation Techniques
Grow'Em features details on numerous plant propagation techniques: growing from seed, cuttings, or layering. Division, grafting, the growing of plants from bare-root specimens, and bulb techniques are covered.
From the broad subject headings above, you dig easily into further detail. Need to know how to stratify or pre-chill seed, to break dormancy? Chipping seed or twin scaling bulbs, or dividing orchids pseudobulbs? Reproducing bonsai? Find it here.
Optimal Growing Conditions
Plants are (mostly) incredibly robust, adaptable, forgiving - but all have their limits. To propagate successfully, to truly thrive, match your growing environment to the needs of the plants. That's one of our goals: to provide you the information you need to choose the best conditions to propagate the plant of your choice. Search the plant index; find your plant. Get the info. Need more? Follow the hyperlinks to more specific entries: compost or fertilization or lighting.
Again, less commonly addressed subjects are covered in some detail. We have bone meal and other natural additives, compost tea and cold frames, double digging and biodegradable pots. And more: use either these links, or the menu bar to the left, to find the subject you're interested in.
