How to get plants you rooted...

How to get all those plants you rooted this summer
ready for winter.

patty, if you been using my Homemade Plant
Propagation System
to root cuttings of your favorite plants this summer, it's time
to start thinking about getting those small plants ready for

If you haven't yet built yourself a Homemade Plant Propagation
System, do so now because you can also use it to root
hardwood cuttings over the winter. The instructions are on this

At the bottom of the page you'll find a link to a page on
the basics of plant propagation. There you'll discover how
to do hardwood cuttings in the fall and winter. Give it a try,
it's fun!

Getting those little tiny rooted cuttings through the winter
is easier than you think. All you have to do is plant them
a row in your garden. Select a protected area, then keep
an eye on them over the winter. Sometimes the action of
freezing and thawing ground can force small plants out of
the ground over the winter. So check yours each time the
ground thaws and if necessary just tamp them back in.

Come early spring transplant them to pots or to their
permanent home in your garden.

If you still have cuttings that are in the process of rooting,
or not yet rooted, just bury the entire flat so the top
of the flat is flush with the ground. By spring those
cuttings are likely to be rooted.

That's it! Those small plants are tougher than you think.
