How to Make a New Plant :: Little Baby Geraniums


I asked professional grower/gardener/landscaper Donna Dixson to write about "why she loves what she does" ... and she offered the post, "How to Make a New Plant."
In it, she says - "creating a brand new little plant is almost as rewarding as birthing a baby, and ... not nearly as painful." She provides step by step instructions for how to take a geranium and make a bunch of babies out it.
Read on to see more, thanks! ~jb

    Rooting hormone is a powder that you can put on cuttings to help them root. It can be purchased in places like Home Depot, Lowe's or just about any nursery or plant seller.
