You can collect the seeds and plant them or you can simply take cuttings from your oleanders to start new plants. Just choose new growth and cut a 4-6 inch long stem. Remove the lower leaves, dip the cut end in rooting hormone and set it in a container of moistened potting soil. It should root in 4-5 weeks. Enjoy!
