Understanding Plant Propagation

Posted by Chris Sabbarese on Mon, Oct, 05, 2015 @ 13:10 PM

plant_propagation_on_Corona_ToolsEver wonder how plant breeders introduce new plants each year? It could be a color variation of the leaves or flower, or greater resistance to diseases or pests. Propagation includes the process of blending the characteristics of one plant with another to create something new and unique. Part science and part artform, plant propagation is a fascinating way of providing the right plant for the right spot in the right environment and it's our topic of discussion on #plantchat.
