Myrtle branches

Asked October 18, 2018, 10:41 PM EDT

I used myrtle branches as stakes for frost protection on another plant. These stakes have now shooted at all knodes.
Can I now cut and pot as many shoots? Including their original stem/branch.
Thank you so much. I am in Australia

Outside United States trees and shrubs

Thank you for your question. I’m afraid I don’t understand it all, but, yes, you can propagate trees from twigs. Here is an article on the various ways to get new plants: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/crepe-myrtle/how-to-propagate-crepe-myrtle-trees.htm Good luck!

Thank you for your reply I guess i have 2 questions:
How do I separate these new growths from the twigs.
Or is the twig now the plant

I am unable to see from the photos whether they are separate plants, or the same. I would err on the side of caution and leave them together.
