HOW TO PLANT OUR CUTTINGS:
1. Fill a pot with a well-draining potting mix and insert the cutting about 10 cm deep into the soil. Water the cutting lightly to settle the soil.
2. Place the pot in a warm, sunny location, but protect it from direct sunlight for the first few weeks.
3. Water the cutting sparingly, only when the soil feels dry to the touch. Overwatering can lead to root rot and kill the cutting.
4. Once the cutting has developed roots and new growth, it can be transplanted to its permanent location in a well-drained soil and a sunny location.
By following these simple steps, you can successfully plant frangipani cuttings and enjoy the beauty and fragrance of these lovely plants in your garden.
