PLANT PROPAGATION
Propagation methods: seeds, vegetative by rhizome parts. Scrubs are dug up between September and November and stored indoors at 4-5°C during winter. If temperature is higher, scrubs should be covered with peat or sand. It is advisable to start preparing scrubs for planting between February and March. Big scrubs are divided into 5-10 cm long parts (diameter 2-4 cm) with strong bud and 2-3 weak buds. Cutted places are sterilized and dried. Scrubs are planted into rich soil indoors at 15°C temperature. Plants are planted outdoors after the last frost. If propagated by seeds, they should be stratified. Seeds are stored 2 hours on snow, after one second in boiling water and sown in boxes in February. Seeds germinating in 25-30 days. Seedlings are replanted in pots (13 cm diameter) in March and to the final growing place in June.
