Propagating new plants.
It’s the bit of flower farming that everyone loves, that everyone anticipates at this time of year, and can’t wait to get round to.
But the difference now to before I was flower farming, is that I need these seeds to grow. I need those cuttings to take, I need that divided perennial to produce flowers this year. Ok, isn’t ok…. They all need to be good or excellent.
When you’re growing for profit, getting it wrong means
Less plants / higher attrition
Spaces in your beds that weeds can grow in
Flowers that don’t meet the grade
and potentially - Unhappy customers.
You need to be able to root out any plants that aren’t doing well, and throw them away….. They won’t do you any favours.
Gasp…Horror. throw a plant away. If that’s what you’re thinking now, then dismiss that gardener thinking. You want the best quality plants, so Ok just isn’t good enough.
