Propagation For Plants Is Done In A Number Of Ways


Oasis Hydroponics Even if you don't know much about gardening, you know what propagation for plants is all about, whether you're familiar with the term or not. Do you garden at home, and do you grow your own food? What does your landscape look like? Each one of the plants on your lawn has been propagated using one means or another.

Have you ever taken a cutting from one plant and planted it to grow a new plant from the cutting? Some plants are easier to do that with than others.

Trees drop seeds and all kinds of new trees sprout up or 'propagate.' It's fun to try to grow new plants from cuttings, too, if you've never given it a try.
