Gardener’s Glossary

Book Stack  Gardener’s Glossary – Layering:

A method of propagation, by which a shoot is induced to root while still attached to the parent plant. The basic form is self-layering, which occurs naturally in some plants.

Note: Plants that may be successfully propagated in this way include (but not limited to): lavender, rosemary, and sage.
