On plant hebee



Hallo Caroleann - I answered a question from petemc today on taking cuttings, so if you look further down the list of questions, there's some help for you. Good luck.

I have this in my GoY calendar:

Hebes are easily propagated from 3–4 in cuttings taken in summer (June - August) from the current season’s growth. Cuttings are taken just below a leaf joint. The bottom two pairs of leaves are removed and the cuttings dipped into a rooting hormone, although this not essential. These are then inserted into a soil-based John Innes Compost.

Young plants should be potted up in the spring. Remove the growing tip to induce a more bushy plant. Plants normally flower in the first year.

Make sure you place them in the shade and do not them them dry out.
