I have the most beautiful tamarix in my garden (see attached photos), & I would like to know how to propagate it from cuttings & what time of year is best?

Many thanks

Sue Ford

Hi Sue,

What a beautiful specimen! To propagate it simply select healthy, pencil thick shoots with a couple of leaf nodes on, and put in a sandy trench. This is best done towards the end of summer.

By the following spring they should have roots.

Hope this helps!

Let us know how you get on.
