Yesterday I watched a YouTube video from a gardener who told about how easy it is to take cuttings from Impatiens and create a whole new plant! That sounded wonderful to me.
In the pic below is the worst Impatien pot in my garden. All that I do is find a stem with a couple of leaves and some nodes. The bottom end of the stem must be cut on an angle. Then the stem end is dipped in a little honey which acts like a root hormone.
I make a hole in the soil for the cutting with my finger, and plant the cutting. The new cuttings have to be kept in damp soil all the time. No drying out!
