Propagating Tasks in February
A time for setting some established plants into growth, and taking cuttings from others.
Continue with your sowing and cutting programme as required, and pot up the seedlings and cuttings as they become available.
Note: As with most advice on gardening the advisors location will often influence the content of the advice.
To alleviate this problem I have produced this chart indicating how you can make adjustments to the timing of events as seen in this website.
I hope you find this useful! .......Tg
