Well the first hard freeze of the season and now work can begin on doing hard wood cuttings for next year. Along with the freeze also the first measurable snow of the year.
While it is inevitable it has an important role in the garden and it does have the benefit of giving s weary garden a break from all of the care and upkeep a garden can demand.
As I mentioned before time to do hardwood cuttings that is a way to propagate new plant material using cuttings after the plant has gone dormant for the winter. These cuttings can be taken once the temperature has drop below freezing for 36 to 48 hours.
You will be able to find out more information under the Plant Propagation `pages.
