Propagating Plants
Q.

trees

Anonymous added on June 9, 2015 | Answered

I have several trees on my property but would like to add more. Is it possible to take a branch from an existing tree and place it in water to make it grow roots? I do not want to buy trees with balls of sod on them to be planted but would like to start out from scratch. How do I do this? Thanks.

    Unfortunately, this is not the way most trees are propagated. However, this article should help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/tgen/how-to-root-cuttings-from-various-shrubs-bushes-and-trees.htm
