That’s what nurserymen call the little plants that they purchase to plant out in the field or in containers. What they do is purchase in rooted cuttings, plant them in the field or in containers, and then they either grow them on to offer, or they grow them on and simply keep them around a year or two longer so they can take cuttings from them.Then once they have a supply of their own plants they can offer the ones they purchased in that are now landscape size. The following summertime she can get about 6,000 cuttings from the original 1000 plants that she purchased, plus another 9,000 cuttings from the 3,000 she planted out last fall.That’s a total of 12,000 cuttings.She continues to plant her rooted cuttings out in the field and keeps taking cuttings from them till she has all she wants to grow. Make each bed 4’large so you can reach the center to weed and take cuttings, and put the plants in the bed 10″apart.As long as you keep taking cuttings the plants will stay relatively small, and compact.
