TAYLOR The propagation of fuchsias is one of the most fascinating experiences one may have in the fuchsia garden. Imagine raising your own fuchsias, either lrom seed or cuttings, and then winning a trophy in a flower show the same year! For the amateur, propagation is the t -sicst, taken from soft wood cuttings in the fall (October), on through until spring, in either! a cool glass house, cold frame' or a lath bench with a southern exposure, protected with a frame covered with a clear plastic material. The procedure for taking fuchsia cuttings is the same, no matter when it is done. Fall cuttings will make a blooming size plant that year. However, you will need to wait another season for the plant 1 to reach specimen proportions. Commercial growers usually start cuttings during every month of the year. Most growers use sharp rivcrj sand for their rooting medium. Sand is cheap, easy to obtain, grows excellent plants and has proved itself over a period of years. Other materials on the market are sponge-rok and vermiculite. Mix either or both with- half j sand, with each other, or usedj separately, will raise excellent: plants. This writer uses vermiculite or sponge-rok simply because they may be purchased in any nursery or garden supply store, tucked under the arm and carried home. In the propagation of fuchsias,»»' by cuttings or seed, reasonable sanitation should be practiced.' Why put a sterile rooting medium . into a contaminated container? All!; containers should be scrubbed with boiling water and a disinfectant, such as ordinary household bleach. |, Sponge-rok and vermiculite are.; sterile materials when new and j unused.

In selecting your cuttings it is Professional Painters choose Ameritone f VINYL-BOND FOR ALL EXTERIOR aid INTERIOR surfaces 'OH important that they be taken from the ends of healthy young branches. The cuts are made just below a node, using a very sharp knife. Cut the branch off cleanly Do not hack-or crush this tender new growth. Make your cuttings between two; and three inches long.

Therefore, do not defoliate a cutting or a plant any more than is necessary. Dip the cutting into a rooting hormone and immediately insert it about one inch deep into the rooting medium. Do not allow the cutting to stand around in the open air and wilt. Place the cuttings about an inch apart in all directions to insure proper air circulation. Water well and place in the shade for a few days, until the cuttings stand erect. Then move them out into the light, but never into direct sunlight.
