prunings as cuttings / what are you pruning now?
- This is a good time for thinning some kinds of plants. When pruning, you may want to try rooting the larger pieces your are cutting off. No harm in trying!
- For plants that want to bloom soon, when trying to root prunings, you might want to pinch out the flower buds, so the plant can concentrate on growing new roots.
- Or, just bring those branchs in, put them in vases and enjoy the forced flowers! i think sprays of fruit tree blossoms look great with daffydills. (But in sepatate vases next to each other, not together; daffodil sap can keep other plant cuttings from taking up water.)
- i'm pruing fruit trees this week. Those of you with more experience, what are you pruning / rooting / forcing now?
- Happy gardening,
