Re: Spring Gardening


I was potting some we dug a few weeks ago and a few stems fell by the
wayside.  Another MG picked them and stuck them directly in the ground and
insists they'll take.  She gave me this scornful look for casting them
aside.
Also, you can pinch them at say, 6 inches, to encourage branching.  That way
they don't get leggy.
