Your rating: None


Many annual and perennial plants can be propagated from seeds. Although growing plants from seeds is relatively easy compared to other methods of multiplying plants, it can be challenging due to the specific germination requirements of certain seeds. In general, such requirements are related to overcoming various kinds of germination inhibitions. This publication provides information on how to germinate seeds and grow them into healthy plants.

Your rating: None


Muscadine grapes are easy to propagate using softwood cuttings. The best time to take cuttings is when the vines are actively growing, in late May to early August. Before propagating a vine, determine whether or not the cultivar is patented. It is illegal to propagate patented cultivars without permission from the patent holder.

Your rating: None


Mango trees (Mangifera indica L.) are cultivated in many countries of East, South and West Africa. In these countries, mangoes contribute to farmer family diets as well as serving as a cash crop. Mangoes are a delicate fruit and, therefore, sensitive to transport, which limits trade opportunities. However, there is considerable market interest in processed mango—in pulp or dried form.
