EP165 - How to to take Thyme cuttings and make more plants


Hi everyone, Alan from Newlands Nursery.

You have seen me take cuttings many times, today I am showing you how to take cuttings of Thyme Lemonade, also known as Lemonade Cascade. This really will do as it says, by cascading, not only the thyme, but the outstanding almost fizzy lemonade scent too. Looks fabulous in, baskets, pots and rockeries, a real sensory experience.

This cuttings demonstration, is the same with any thymes. This method also improves the mother plant. 


Step by step Guide.

1. Put some compost in a cell tray, tap it down.

2. Watch closely how I take the cutting, leaving a small stem to plant.

3. Grab your dibber and make a small hole, pop cutting in, and gently just tuck it in. 

4. Water well, cover, and keep on windowsill and you will be surprised how quickly these cuttings will grow. This is the perfect time to take cuttings, as the plant is actively growing.
