Serpentine Layering

By goldfinch4
May 13, 2013

Most vines propagate well by serpentine layering. Dig a shallow trench next to the base of the vine. Take a section of the vine long enough to lay on the ground. Make a small cut on the bottom of the vine a couple feet away from the base. Bury the portion of the vine where it’s cut. You may want to anchor it down with a pin or small rock. Depending on the type of vine, the roots should form in several weeks to several months.

I've heard that it does! And better with some species then others. I have a Tibetan type and I'm waiting for it to get bigger, then I'm going to try this! Hurray!
Thanks Chris I tip my hat to you.

Yes, it does. In fact, I've already had my clematis do this on their own and start a new plant!

I've only tried it on 4 or 5 plants, and it worked well on all of them.
