Are you feeling like buying garden accessories online at the end of the summer? Well, end of the summer does not imply that cold-winter gardeners should bid farewell to the tropical plants and tender perennials. You have no need of rearranging your whole house in order to accommodate large tropical for the upcoming winter. For this, you need to employ certain tricks which allow you to propagate tender perennials. So, now you can buy all the garden accessories required for the perennials.
Perhaps the easiest way of keeping the tropical plants for the upcoming year is to make an effective plan to propagate them by rooting stem cuttings. In this way, you will be able to get rid of digging up and a potting a plant which has been growing in the garden. You should find space inside for those plants which can be placed in the large garden containers. You just need to snip a length of leafy stem and insert it into a small pot of damp potting mix. One thing you should remember that you are allowed to root several stems in one pot.
It has been seen that fresh growth often take root easily and it encourages the new stems a few weeks before the first frost in your area. In order to do this, you should give the plant all-over haircut, trimming it back by the two-thirds or so. It will spur the tender perennial plants to put out fresh growth. Within few weeks, these new stems will be enough long to be snipped and pot up.
You should keep the soil in the pots dump. But remember one thing, it should not be soggy. The pots can be kept enclosed in plastic bags to help conserve the moisture. You should be aware of the fact that whether the cuttings have taken the root at the face of resisting a gentle tug or not. Next, you are allowed to remove the bag and you can tend to the tropical just like any houseplant you grow in your garden.
You can make your cuttings go back into the garden in two ways. First, you can transplant them as you would do any young tender perennial you purchased at the nursery. There is another way as well. If the plants have become leggy, you should take a fresh round of cuttings from these plants. During the late winter, you should cut them back in order to increase the fresh growth. You should consider the plants given below for this winter:
- Florist geranium
