Take a peek inside a production greenhouse
Ever ponder the origins of all those gorgeous plants at your local garden centre? Here's a behind-the-scenes look!
Propagating plants from cuttings ensures you get an exact clone of the parent plant. Before the cuttings arrive at the greenhouse, trays filled with potting soil are placed on benches. Misters are positioned, ensuring the cuttings have the right amount of moisture needed to root. Before cuttings are placed into the soil, each stem is dipped in a rooting hormone.
