Cut & come again

Brett McGowan, from Melbourne, passed on this tip af­ter see­ing a video of our hor­ti­cul­tural ed­i­tor Phil Dud­man (right) on prun­ing g trees.

All those lovely prun­ings can be­come gifts. We have two figs grow­ing from cut­tings struck in pot­ting mix in half-wine bar­rel pots. They are do­ing rea­son­ably well, and I have also suc­cess­fully pot­ted more prun­ings to use as gifts.

Visit our Face­book page, where Phil is post­ing more videos with step-by-step guides for gar­den tasks.
