Recently i have learned the joy of Air Layering plants. I have had great success with the Pink Perfection Camelia in our backyard. I have 12 new plants about a foot and half tall, with buds loaded all over them. Now I've started looking around the neighborhood for other plants i'd like to have starts from - like a child in a candy store. My neighbor has a beautiful red camelia, i think i'll ask him about trying to air layer it this coming spring. It really is too easy!
This is why you need a Red Maple in your yard. You have to love the Fall!
To the right you see the Yellow Jessamine that i have been layering and have 12 baby plants growing like wild fire. Also behind the Red Maple you see my "hobby" - the hedge row. Uh.
