Notes on Windowsill seed and plant raising kit

"This simple system works well. Invest in some coarse horticultural grit sand and fill small, rigid plastic seed trays to the brim and water well. Fine sand is no use: it dries out too quickly. After removing any flower buds and trimming the cutting below the node or leaf joint, plunge into the sand, submerging two thirds of the cutting, and label. "

Yucca Dear "person that can me help" My Mum had an Adams Needle (Yucca), she loved it, and it was a strong healthy plant that flowered beautifully every year. Unfortunately my Mother died 17 years ago, so when my brother and I sold 7 years ago, my Aunt offered to re-plant the Yucca in my new garden (due to my lack of gardening knowledge), but she also split it, and planted one half in her garden. 7 years on (and now in my 30s so a keen gardener) the plant hasn't grown or flowered once. My Aunt's on the other hand is big, strong and flowers annually, so I moved it last Saturday into a really sunny spot. Sadly though in doing so the root split. Now I have a piece of root but no growth on it and wonder, can I grow a plant from it? Many thanks and look forward to hearing from you, Beti-jane.

Hello Bets, I'm afraid this does not sound great. Your best option now would be to see if there is any section that still has roots on and plant that piece up as soon as you can. Alternatively you can try taking stem cuttings. Stem cuttings can be done in late spring to late summer. Remove a stem and cut between the leaf nodes creating pieces around 10cm long. Remove all the foliage and press the cuttings horizontally into trays of good quality cuttings compost. Put the pot in to a propagator or cover with a clear plastic bag. They usually take about four to six weeks to root. If all else fails you may have to ask your aunt for a cutting. I hope this helps. Helen Plant Doctor
