ornamental plants

Asked by poojathally | 4th Jan, 2010, 05:57: PM

Expert Answer:

Many ornamental plants do not come true from seed. To increase the numbers of these plants, gardeners and horticulturists use asexual propagation. In asexual propagation, the new plants are genetically exact copies or clones of a single parent plant. The methods used in asexual propagation range from taking leaf cuttings of African violets to grafting apple cuttings onto root stocks.
