Cleaning the blade 1st

Cleaning the blade 1st (Begonia)

Before taking a cutting, always check the blade is clean, dip it in Metholated Spirit

Now that's a good tip.

I was told never to take a cutting without dipping the blade first in case of infection. If one plant has something, cut it and move on to the next plant hey presto that's got it too. My Begonia growing friend Stan is brilliant with Begonias, he's had many years experience :-)
