Many peren­ni­als and shrubs take well from late sea­son semi-ripe cut­tings, such as laven­der, box and lilac. Insert tip cut­tings into hor­mone-root­ing pow­der and then com­post. Wa­ter, place in frost-free en­vi­ron­ment and then only wa­ter when dry. Take root cut­tings from peren­ni­als such as eryn­gium and acan­thus, put in com­post. Divi­sion is an­other cheap way of in­creas­ing your stock, for ex­am­ple achil­lea, aster, cro­cos­mia, se­dum and phlox.
