Successful propagation from cuttings is all about understanding plant nodes. What is a node? Stems have two repeating sections; nodes and internodes. Nodes are where new leaves, stems or roots emerge. They often show as a ring around the stem. When propagating a plant by cuttings, it's important to plant the cutting with an intact node in the soil, or rooting in water. This is where new growth happens from. Nodes can respond to conditions to determine what to grow; light and air promotes a new leaf to grow, where dark and moist promotes the node to grow a root. Cut at the internode when you take a cutting, leaving the nodes whole and functioning. Join us at this workshop to learn how you can grow new plants from the ones you already have. Each attendee will take home a cloned hydrangea baby, and maybe other cuttings as well.
