Propagating native plants

Asked June 12, 2013, 10:53 AM EDT

I manage my family's ranch in South Texas. Our main business is hunting, and I want to try and improve our habitat. The white-tailed deer seem to love our native guayacan. I want to try to propagate guayacan from clippings. Questions:

  • Is it possible to propagate guayacan from clippings?
  • If so, how? What is the process?
I am new to "gardening" so any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

This is not my specialty, but it would seem guayacan propagates best by seed.

I recommend calling your local wildlife biologist for more information. There might even be assistance funding to help you with your wildlife "gardening." You can find their contact info here: http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/landwater/land/habitats/southtx_plain/regulatory/?county=brooks.

Best of luck!!
