During April, the strong basal shoots of herbaceous perennials make easy, quick-rooting cuttings. The tall forms of phlox are ideal candidates, and gardeners have long propagated them in this way to share with friends and neighbours. From July, you’ll see many gardens awash with their pink, purple and white flowers, and their perfume fills the evening air.
By taking your own basal cuttings, you can make lots of new plants, which gives you plenty of scope to try out different planting ideas. And you can use this technique on all manner of beautiful border perennials.
To take effective basal cuttings, choose a strong healthy plant and choose three of four basal shoots.
