Growing from Cuttings

Have you always coveted a particular plant in a friend’s garden and wished you could have a specimen yourself? Growing plants from cuttings is the easiest – and definitely the cheapest – way to propagate large numbers of plants.  

Good examples are murrayas, grevilleas, fuchsias, geraniums, gardenias, abelia, buxus, camellias & azaleas.

What you'll need

  • A pot filled with Yates Seed Raising Mix. (This mix has been specially formulated to successfully raise seeds and help roots form on cuttings) 
  • A pair of secateurs 
  • A sharp knife 
  • A pencil 
  • A plastic label (which can be made out of strips cut from an icecream container) 
  • Yates Cutting Powder or Clonex 
  • A small container of water 
  • Yates Mini Greenhouse 
  • Yates Waterwise DroughtShield 
  • Pieces of favourite plants
