plant self rooting at minus 17


Whilst stirring the soil in a pot of “Maggie Mott”, a bedding viola I noticed that one stem of the plant had produced some nice white roots just below the surface of a of the pot.

Shown at Picture 1.

I just snapped the stem with the roots on and placed into a poly bag with self seal just to keep it until I took it indoors, Picture 2. To pot on in the warm kitchen.

Picture 3. In kitchen with polybag enclosing pot. 

As the pot had been frozen for three weeks  solid I was amazed at how well the plant had coped and still had the determination to renew itself.

Will grow this “Irishman’s cutting” and report later on the progress.
