Do you know how to grow lilacs from cuttings? Lilacs are beautiful plants with brilliant purple flowers that bloom in spring. They love climates of chilly winters. They also emit sweet smelling fragrances when they bloom in springtime.
Some of the material you will be needing to carry out this kind of planting include:
Peat pots, if you are going to be growing a small bush of lilacs
Sand or perlite
Pruning shears (don’t forget to sterilize them)
The cutting needs soil to host its growth. To achieve this, get a peat pot and fill it up with potting soil. Let the soil mixture be made up of sand, soil, and perlite. Water it mildly and create a hole where you can plant the cutting.
As you stay consistent with the watering, cover the pot with a transparent and neat plastic bag. This is to create a humid environment around it. But you need to once in a while open the bag to allow for sufficient air circulation.
The plant won’t have to stay in its pot confines forever. When you’ve noticed that the roots have matured and can withstand a couple of unfriendly environmental challenges, you can take it out of its pot soil and into a real soil outdoors.
