Ausrose's Believe It or Not

Ausrose's Believe It or Not

Post by Ausrose on 9th June 2013, 20:18

A business man I deal with in New Zealand recently sent the following:-
"My allotment neighbour has a row of roses, which he took as cuttings. I asked how he took them. He simply plunges the cuttings into the ground. But his secret of success is the humble potato! Before planting cuttings, he pushes the bottom end into a small potato, which he believes keeps the cuttings moist as they develop roots. It sounds crazy, but his row of allotment roses is proof it works. Try it, and let us know how you get on."

Hijack back on track Doug, it should work considering the carbohydrates and other nutrients in spuds. I will give this a go in August.

I will try to find out during the week. Along the same lines as sticking the cuttings in the potatoes I have heard of sticking cuttings in blocks of moist floral foam.
