PLANT PROPAGATION
Propagation methods: seeds, scrub division. Propagation by seeds is used only in selection. Seeds are sown in Autumn after picking up or in Spring after soaking for 2-3 days in water. Water should be changed every day. Seeds are sown in March with space 2x2 cm. covered by 0.5 cm layer of soil. Seeds germinate within 3 weeks at 20°C. Seedlings are picked out in beds when 4 pairs of leaves appear. Young sprouts are very sensitive for the lack of water and should be watered periodically. Plants are replanted to the final growing place in Autumn or next Spring. Seedlings begin blooming in 2-3 years. Propagation methods: seeds, scrub division. Propagation by seeds is used only in selection. Propagation by scrub division is mostly used. Soil should be removed after digging. Roots are very intertwined, so scrub is divided by hand in pieces with a few roots and the growth of buds. Very long roots are shortened by 30 percent. From 5 years old scrub 20-25 pieces could be made. Scrub can be divided in Spring or in Early Autumn (September). Planted in the same depth as the breeding and growing plants (at 5-8 cm depth above the bud growth). Plants should be watered after planting.
