Cloning plants can be easy and an affordable way to get the exact same plant as a parent plant you have been admiring.

The cornerstone of a small but productive home propagation unit is a multiflat. A multiflat is similar to the plastic tray that you buy spring annuals in, with dozens of small pots. Choose the pot size for propagating conifers. The pot flat is better for propagating perennials and sowing seeds.   This comprehensive book covers annuals, perennials, bulbs, trees, shrubs, and conifers, and seems to be as popular among plant enthusiasts as among growers.

Throughout the book individual plants are the main focus, with all appropriate propagation methods discussed in detail and clarified. Propagation by stem cuttings is the most commonly used method to propagate many woody ornamental plants.

Stem cuttings of many favorite shrubs are quite easy to root. Typically, stem cuttings of tree species are more difficult to root. However, cuttings from trees such as crape myrtles, some elms, and birches can be rooted.

Hardwood cuttings are also only taken from shrubs, bushes and trees that lose their leaves every year. This method will not work with evergreen plants.

Cut off a hardwood cutting that is 12 to 48 inches long. Trim the end of the cutting to be planted just below where a leafbud grows on the branch. Most annual plants reproduce sexually – so most vegetables fall into this category.

The other method of plant propagation is ‘asexual’. This involves making an exact duplicate of the parent plant’s genetic material by grafting, layering, cuttings or root division. Many perennial herbs and shrubs are propagated by at least one of these.
