Erigeron Propagation.

Sarah has discovered lately that Erigeron karvinskianus (widespread fleabane or seaside daisy) — seen right here beneath her Bonica rose vegetation— are in a position to be propagated by cuttings.

The very best time to take tip cuttings is in spring with the primary of their new progress, earlier than they flower. A few 10 cm slicing will do, stripped of foliage on the base and put it in moist potting combine, in a shady pot and maintain watered.

Though a bit gradual rising at first, they quickly type a helpful fairly mat. Which Sarah says may be very helpful. They will final for a few years, offering weed cowl beneath vegetation corresponding to Sarah’s roses.

Though you should purchase them in seedling punnets, you may’t beat a free plant!
