    Default Can I grow a new tayberry plant from a broken cane?

    Hi all

    Around a month ago we broke one of the canes from our tayberry plant (we've only had it a year, so has not reached the prolific stage yet!). A bit gutted, we popped it into some water and it has been there since. It still seems to be alive... The leaves still look healthy and the buds/shoots have been growing.

    My question is can I just go ahead and plant this in soil now, and if so how? I appreciate I could just give it a go, but space is quite limited in our garden and if it is unlikely to work then I'd rather go ahead and just buy a new plant. If there's a pretty good chance it sill grow on and be healthy, then I'll give it my best shot!

    Many thanks

    Max

    Is the rest of the plant, in the ground, still alive/ sending up canes?

    The "cutting" should root, in the water so I'd wait a while longer.
    Look on the bright side

    Yes, it is and seems to be doing well.

    OK, I'll take a closer look to see if it is rooting yet, and if it is but I am not sure if it has rooted enough, then I will post a pic.

    Many thanks for the quick reply.

    I wouldn't worry. The main plant if it is in the ground and doing well will send out runners like a raspberry and if the tips of the canes touch the ground will root. Have you really got room for another Tayberry?
