How to take salvia cuttings

In this quick video clip, Monty Don demonstrates how easy it is to take salvia cuttings.

Now is the ideal time to take cuttings from half-hardy salvias such as the magnificent purple-flowered Salvia guarantica, to make lots of new plants for free. Simply follow Monty Don's practical video guide to learn which shoots make good cuttings, what compost mix they need, how to trim the cuttings, and what conditions to give them to help them root. The process is quick and easy, and by next summer you'll have established young plants to add colour and drama to your borders.
