Definition of trench layering

Categorized under "General"

Definition as written by mwhit:

Also known as etiolation layering, used primarily for fruit stock. The parent plant is planted at an angle (30-40 degrees) so new shoots can be pegged down in shallow trenches and covered with soil. When rooted, the shoots can be detached from the parent plant and planted out.
