Bottle Brush Cuttings.

June 28th, 2016 · No Comments

To take bottle brush cuttings take the new shoots produced this year and cut the stem so a small section of last years grow is included on the base of the cutting.This will be harder wood and will stop rotting whilst the cutting roots.If the cutting is longer than 100mm reduce by removing the top of the cutting.Insert around the edge of a 75mm pot 3 cuttings to a pot using a mixture of 50 percent compost and 50 percent horticultural grit available from a garden centre.Water well and stand on a kitchen or bathroom window sill,keep out of direct sunlight and hopefully the cuttings should start to root around about 12 to 16 weeks.
