Propagating houseplants can be one of the most enjoyable and rewarding aspects of indoor gardening. Creating new plants from a parent plant is a quick way to grow a wide variety houseplants to share with friends or add to your current collection. Successfully propagating houseplants has everything to do with choosing an appropriate propagation method and selecting healthy plants to propagate from. Don’t attempt to propagate plants that are diseased or have overly thin or thick stems.

Most things advertised as free have a catch to them, but there’s no catch to UNH Cooperative Extension’s Free Seed Program.  In its third year, 20 packets of seeds are sent out for the asking to schools, homeschool families and education-based organizations.  “We’ve got over 550 orders so far this year,” says Master Gardener Gary Sheehan, who initiated and has led the program for the last three years. “Our first year, we had 175 orders, and last year we had 230 orders.”
