Is there a way to do this? My neighbor has the most gorgeous bright pink bouganvillas and I was wondering if there was a way I could gather seed from theirs (with permission of course) and grow my own?
I would take a piece of Hard wood rather than Soft wood .
Stick the end you are going to put in the ground into some rooting powder or honey .
Then right into some GOOD soil .
Do 2 or 3 of them , They don't always take .
It's lots of fun .
Hi growing up ...I find them fairly easy to strike...as the others have said...about 50% strike rate ...may I suggest late Summer or Early Autumn is the best time...and a sandy mix...then into a warm shade position until the new growth shows .Plant out after any danger of frost...into a warm sunny place. Good luck:)
growingup - thanks for the explanation of soft wood and hard wood. I do see one or the other recommended, but didn't know exactly what that meant. When my daughter's bougs get a little bigger I will try it -- nothing ventured . . .
