Can you really have Thirty to Fifty new plants from just one original plant?
Yes, you bet!
For example, by regularly stopping, (trimming), a fuchsia you can easily have up to fifty new rooted fuchsia cuttings in one season.
And you will still have the original fuchsia in perfect shape and full of flower through out the growing season.
But it's not just fuchsias, you can get up to thirty to fifty new plants from other types of plants quite easily. And, in just one season.
Actually, fuchsias are a good plant to start your propagating off with. They are one of the easiest plants to take cuttings from and successfully root.
Fuchsias are many gardeners favourite plants. There are so many different varieties and the flowers are truly astounding.
Many varieties are hardy, so you can plant them in your garden and have wonderful flowering borders.
Grouped together they can be spectacular. Alone as a specimen plant, some can be outstanding.
A greenhouse, even a small 8 foot by 6 foot, full of not so hardy and tender fuchsia varieties is a sight to behold. You will not want to leave your greenhouse.
There are new varieties every year and you would do well to start propagating with fuchsias.
