Plant Propagation through cuttings

Asked July 16, 2016, 5:19 PM EDT

Hi I would like to have a large number (30-50) native plants to plant along my fence line. I have lots of native plants already. Ocean Spray, Indian Plum, Salmonberry, Salal, Oregon Grape (dull), and many more. I would like to take cutting from my plants to make the needed plants. Can you give me simple step by step directions or direct me to a resource that would help with this? I'd also be interested in taking a class on how to do it.

You might start in your home county with this - http://extension.oregonstate.edu/yamhill/native-plant-gardening/feed

I also used the search phrase “how to propagate northwest native plants site:edu” --- but without the quote marks – and found numerous reliable links. Here’s a selection:

- Plant Propagation Protocols https://courses.washington.edu/esrm412/protocols/protocols.htm

- Cutting Propagation Methods of PNW Native Trees and Shrubs http://depts.washington.edu/propplnt/Chapters/Cuttings.pdf

This publication may also prove useful: Gardening with Oregon native plants - https://catalog.extension.oregonstate.edu/sites/catalog/files/project/pdf/ec1577.pdf

And this website is filled with tips, tricks, and background information; uses the links at the left: https://green2.kingcounty.gov/gonative/index.aspx

Enjoy your project!
