Phormium propagation


By Bramley

All the leaves fell off my Phormium and I thought it was dead.bur after cutting it down and leaving it for two or three weeks it has now sprouted approximarely 8 or 9 shoots around the base. How do I remove these to propagate when they are attached to the solid wood of the base please?



try seperating the off shoots using two garden forks. you may have to cut them away- use a clean sharp knife to make a clean sterile cut. Pot on and leave in a cold frame...hopefully they should take root

They are very thick strong rooted plants if they are established! be warned its a work out!
