If you buy one Sedum, you need to never ever have to buy another, as they are the plant world’s easiest plant to propagate. Sedums are a beautiful plant, blooming in August and September, extremely appealing to bees and butterflies.
Sedum can be propagated in 2 ways, either by cuttings or rooted in water.
If by cuttings, a truly easy way is in May is to chop Sedums to make them bushier later in the year but don’t throw the cuttings away. Simply push into ground near the main plant and they will root really quickly. This will produce a good clump of Sedums within a reasonably brief amount of time as they fast growing.
Put a cutting into water and watch the roots grow, which is fascinating in itself. Once the sedum stem has been put into water, it has rooted and grown tiny plants. When the roots are mature pot up into little pots and put in protected location. Later plant out in the garden and from the one stem you might have around 5 plants.
Sedums are truly dead simple to propagate and an excellent plant to start with if you have not propagated plants in the past. It’s always good to have plants for free that have actually taken a trip no road or air miles.
Sedums are attractive for months starting with the flowers now however even late in the year the flower heads look fantastic with frost on them. Sedums are simple to grow.
