how to take cuttings from pinks




Answers

 

They root very easily. Just take off non-flowering shoots about 4" in length, pull off the bottom leaves and insert them round the edge of a pot of gritty compost. Don't be tempted to pull them up to check! They take a few weeks to root. Then you can pot each one on separately to grow into a plant before planting in the garden.
