Propagating REBECCA (violetta) show plants


The first attachment shows four plants of Rebecca in 2008 from which clones were made for showing in 2010 and 2011 at the National Florist pansy and viola shows.

 

The National judge John Snocken informed me after awarding first place on both occasions that the plants that I had obtained locally years ago were the nearest that he had seen to the original, which was much more yellow than others.

 

The second attachment shows six divisions made for the coming year from plants grown this year.

 

In the past I have taken cuttings but with violettas to which Rebecca belongs divisions are so easy compared to any other method.
