If you’re anything like me, walking into a garden center is a dangerous affair for your bank account. Even though plants aren’t particularly pricey in the larger scheme of things, it takes a lot of them to fill an entire garden. Plus, when there are so many to choose from, it’s impossible to leave your favorites behind.
Luckily, there is an essential gardening skill that can cut these costs dramatically. Once you get the hang of propagating your own plants, you can literally fill your backyard for almost nothing. If you take cuttings from your friends and neighbors, it can even be completely free.
If you are serious about propagation, it may be wise to invest in a propagation station to keep a close eye on your propagating progress and to display your cuttings in a beautiful way.
Many garden plants can be propagated from cuttings, but these are just a few of the crowd favorites.
There are a wide range of herbaceous plants that can be propagated from cuttings. Some are easily rooted in water, while others with woodier stems require a bit more preparation.
