Then There Were Twelve

Ivy propagation, round 2. Years ago I gave up on planting ivy on our garden boundary walls because it became unmanageable. But a few ivy plants are very good in pots on the patio. Today I bought one at my local garden centre. (Plant, not patio!) I knew when buying it that I’d easily make at least 12 plants from it. So, a few hours later everything is finito. Let the glasshouse work it’s magic, along with the rooting powder of course.

Small ivy becomes very big and unmanageable

    How interesting! With only a little money, effort and time, you get lots of babies! Not to mention, much fun and satisfaction too, I believe?

    Yes indeed, Jade. There's immense satisfaction in growing plants this way. I will be checking the baby hospital regularly to see signs of growth. Later, I am thinking of trying your suggestion about making beneficial yeast bacteria to help them through to adulthood!
