    I propagated my Angel Trumpets 31 varieties of them, Iochromas are picky as I started quite a few but think 20% might survive, and I tried for the first time to propagate my Abutilons and am waiting to see but they are still alive, just really small. that was the cuttings for the year. lotta work and lotta fun. We love our flowers.

    I have started Key Lemon from seeds, easy to propagate and looks cute. I also grown Kiwi from seeds they look fantastic, slow growing though. Planning to grow pines from seed.

    Yes waretop worked at first time as well, quite fun!. I followed this video , real easy despite the man in the video saying it is difficult. Here are some photos:

    I put the seeds on tissue paper, sprayed them with water (not soaked), put them in a plastic bag then hid them in a cupboard for about 15-20 days then seeds started sprouting one after the other. The temperature was around 21C (~70F).

    Have fun!

    Angel trumpet plant (Brugmansia) being ground layered. Bend a branch to the ground, lay a rock or brick on the contact point. Being in contact with the ground causes roots to form on the branch at that spot. When the new roots are significant, cut the connecting branch, scoop up new plant & put it in a new place.

    Chinese evergreen (Aglaonema) cutting from about 3 months ago is making a bunch of new stems.

    Ornamental purslane (Portulaca umbraticola.) Saved last winter by sticking cuttings in house plant pots. This spring, I snipped all the stems & stuck them back in the ground.

    Already blooming stems don't stop blooming when cut & stuck elsewhere. They just keep blooming while taking root. This stem was cut & stuck in the ground here about 4-5 days before taking this pic.

    I put this hanging pot together about a week ago with various cuttings.

    The Cannas & a couple elephant ears were put in this pot as still-dormant rhizomes this spring, with every thing else added as cuttings. Starting to fill in well, IMVHO!

    I was a little confused on propagating and what it exactly meant. Still am a bit...

    I thought it was taking cuttings from a parent plant.....aka cloning?
    I see a lot of people talk about propagation from seeds? Is there a difinitive meaning to this word when talking about plants?

    Well anyway I took my first cutting ever a few weeks ago from one off my black knight butterfly bushes. 4 in a pot but one shriveled away.

    Can someone define the true meaning of propagation? I grow everything from seed. Does that count?

    TY, Growingpains! That sounds awesome! Free food!

    Yes, in its' simplest form, propagation means to cause an increase. More specifically, in relation to gardening, Wiki has a working definition:
    "Plant propagation is the process of creating new plants from a variety of sources: seeds, cuttings, bulbs and other plant parts. Plant propagation can also refer to the artificial or natural dispersal of plants."
    You could also do your own investigation by looking on dictionary.com or any of the other dictionary sites or in an old-school paper dictionary.

    Good luck with your cuttings! It should go well, they're known to propagate easily.

    This one was a cutting 2 yrs ago. Pic from about 2-3 weeks ago. I put it in my MIL's yard when she said she wanted one.

    Plant propagation is making identical plants from some part of the parent plant... leaves, stem, roots or cells. cell culture is pretty specialized and most hobby propagators don't do this, but stem and leaf and root propagation is much easier and many people do it. dividing your hostas come Spring is a form of propagation. you are planning on moving them to selling or giving them to someone else and are replanting them. Growing seeds could be a form of propagation... but it is a personal thought... I personally think of anything but starting seeds when I speak of propagation.

    Thanks for the info. I still don't have a definitive answer but I can live with it. I just never thought it had anything to do with seeds and was mainly to do with taking from cuttings. This is what is confusing me.
    No biggie though.... :)

    P.s. Nice butterfly bush purpleinopp.

    IMG_2090.jpg My addiction to propagating came from my Dad's Cottage Garden beliefs,..never buy a plant,..swap with other Cottage Gardeners,..cuttings and plants,.. then increase them again and again.

    A neighbor of mine died and i took cuttings from quite a lot of his plants before the garden was overgrown,..one such cutting mystified me and only in the past few weeks did it flower,..at last i discovered i had a 'Crinodendron hookerian' 'Chile Lantern Tree',..very pleased with this.
