I’ll be the first to admit that I’m a total novice at this whole “plant propagation” thing. But, now that I’ve been successful with scented geraniums (pelargoniums), I feel like I’m at least allowed to share my experience with taking and rooting cuttings for the first time.
The good news is that I made a video showing the whole process! The bad news is, that in the process of taking the video, I almost completely forgot to take all of the pictures that I needed! One of these days, I think I’ll finally get the hang of this “social media” stuff – but until then, I’m trying my best! Let me know in the comments below whether or not you have any experience with scented geraniums. If so, which is your favorite? Do you have any tips or tricks about taking cuttings for the garden? I’d love to know them! Hope you’re having a really great day!

I have successfully rooted scented geraniums in just a glass of water. A bit of the woody part can be good. Slash cut through the node (diagonally). Remove some leaves so that about 3 remain.
Did you know there is a syndrome called propagationitis? I think I have that…. 🙂
I knew they were easy, but I didn’t know they would root in water! Thanks so much for the info! I think I’m going to love propagation once I learn more!
With all the gardening you do, how do you have such clean, and very attractive, finger nails?
I seem to always have to use a crow bar to remove the dirt and grime from my finger nails after a day in the garden. 🙂
P.S. Not a critique. I really would like to know your secret. 🙂
Lol! That’s funny because it’s something I always notice. I hate when my hands are in pictures. I wish I had a secret, but I’m afraid that lots and lots of scrubbing is the only answer I’ve got! 🙂
