How and when to take Semi-Ripe Cuttings from Plants.



Semi ripe cuttings are taken from garden plants - mainly shrubs, but also perennials - in early summer. They differ from softwood cutting in that they will be longer, and the stem will be more mature after 6 - 8 weeks of new season's growth.

Most of the procedure outlined in taking softwood cuttings should be adhered to.
