Plant propagation gives the growers great satisfaction in knowing we've played a part in creating the plants, It is probably one of the most rewarding aspects of gardening. Many special plants are hard to come by in nurseries, so the only way of getting more of them is to undertake the propagation. There are two benefits of propagation for home gardeners. First, you can get plants cheaply and in large numbers, and secondly, you have the self-satisfaction of starting and nurturing plants from their beginnings. Plant propagation is the process by which new plants grow from a variety of sources: seeds, cuttings, and other plant parts.
