Strike it Thrifty.
Not everything one does in life is a success, and that is OK. We actually learn more from our failures than our successes and since life is a journey of learning, and hopefully gaining wisdom, we should be thankful that opportunities for lessons and personal growth come our way. It is the same in the garden! Not everything I do is a success and I am always learning.
Today I want to talk about how to “strike” plants or grow plants from cuttings. I call this striking it thrifty as the cuttings are free, usually given from a friend’s garden and I strike it lucky enough to consider this a very worthwhile and thrifty way to garden. Not only is this a blessing to me but once established cuttings can be given to others.
So here are some of my plants grown from cuttings.
And of course, there is much more that can be said. I have a dear friend who very successfully strikes roses from cuttings. I always plant the bottom part of shallots when I buy them and regrow new ones and if you look at Facebook or Google you will find lots of ideas on how to grow from cuttings. I hope I have written enough in the last couple of blogs to convince you to scatter some seeds and stick some cuttings in the ground. Experiment,there is nothing to lose! You too can strike it thrifty!
