Cut your cutting
As an example, Ophélie performs a cutting operation on a tree ivy. Obviously, his advice also applies to similar plants. First, select a relatively new stem long enough to be planted in a pot. Section it cleanly using a good pruner that you have taken care to disinfect before so as not to spread disease on the young shoots. Once you have your cuttings, cut the leaves close to the stem for almost the entire length. Only a few leaves should remain on top. Normally, you should have several nodes, at the base of which the roots will be able to develop once in the ground.
Plant your cutting
To plant your cutting, it is advisable to use a dibber. It will facilitate the operation and will not damage the rod. Immerse the latter in the soil until the first leaf. All you have to do is tamp down lightly, and water regularly. To maximize your chances of success, do not hesitate to make several cuttings. You now know how to cut your outdoor plants. Thanks to Ophélie's advice, multiply your favorite plants without going to a garden center, and beautify your garden to make it a warm and friendly space.
