Cutting Propagation || What do cuttings need to survive and grow?

Propagating plants from cuttings is a wonderful way to exploit the natural growth response from plants to get a whole new generation for a fraction of the price it would cost to buy these plants as mature specimens. There are a few conditions you will need to meet to not only ensure cutting survival, but to induce the root and vegetative growth required if those cuttings are to mature and survive the outdoor environment. In this video we are going to take a look at the propagation environment, focussing on what your plants require to survive, why cuttings sometimes fail, and how you can master the techniques of cutting propagation to maximise production in your nursery.
