Q.bottle brush plant propagation

Zone Keynsham, Bristol | ronkent4tr@blueyonder.co.uk added on July 12, 2016 | Answered

This year for the first time, a bottle brush plant I was given some 10 years ago is flowering wonderfully. Can you tell me if I can propagate this so I can give some to my grandchildren.

Thanks in anticipation

Take cuttings from your Bottle Brush Tree in summer when your shrub is actively growing. 6 inch cuttings can be taken and remove the lower 2/3 of the stems. Dip the ends in rooting hormone and place in pots of potting soil.
Keep moist and in a shady bright location.

In 4 to 6 weeks the roots should have begun forming and they can be planted in separate pots.
