Hello. I have some Scabiosa in Pink and in Blue. They are doing extremely well in my garden and i would like to propagte them but dint know how or when. Can anyone please advise?



in spring you should see that there are areas that look like 'creases' between the leaves. the plant can be pulled apart here into smaller sections.
i have been brutal in the past and just cut through the plant again in spring with a knife/garden spade. planted the pieces up and let them grow.
hope this helps.

This year, as Sunburngirl says , in the Spring I checked around the base of my plants and found stems with roots already growing. I pulled these off and grew them on without loss.
