Hor­ti­cul­tural aide mem­oire Take cut­tings of rose­mary

Country Life Every Week - - In The Garden - SCD

This is a good time of year to take rose­mary cut­tings. Set out early in the morn­ing. Cut off sideshoots that don’t bear flow­ers. Drop them into a plas­tic bag. Has­ten to the pot­ting bench. Fill a pot with freedrain­ing com­post. Take each cut­ting and strip off the lower leaves. Shorten the cut­ting to 4in or so with a clean, sharp knife. Push the cut­tings straight into the com­post around the rim of the pot. La­bel and date. Wa­ter and put the plas­tic bag over the pot. Put it some­where it will get plenty of light, but not di­rect sun­light.
