Babs Beetroot gives us her top tips on growing plants from cuttings.
“Imagine being able to cut a limb off, an arm or a leg, plant it in water and watch a new person grow from it. As a human this sounds crazy. However with some plants you can cut off part of the living stem and with a bit of care and patience you can grow a new plant. While a human would need to go to hospital if they cut an arm or a leg off, if you are careful when taking a cutting from a plant it will remain healthy. I would recommend asking people before you take a cutting from their favourite plant, most people say yes, and then within a year you’ll have your very own.”
Chrissie Cress, our most popular and sometimes overlooked microgreen, uncovers the latest fashion for microgreens.
Microgreens: The result of early harvesting of leafy vegetables. Can be grown all year round indoors on windowsills. Harvest leaves when they are bigger than seedlings but smaller than salad leaves. Roughly 3-5cm tall.
