Blooming Brilliance: Cultivating Vibrant Bougainvillea from Cuttings

With its dazzling bursts of colour, Bougainvillaea has the power to transform any garden into a vibrant oasis.

While many gardeners opt for nursery-bought plants, there’s something special about growing these beauties from cuttings.

Not only does it offer a sense of accomplishment, but it also allows you to create a flourishing garden with a personal touch.

The Magic of Bougainvillea Cuttings

Choosing the Right Cutting

The first step in this botanical adventure is selecting the proper cutting.

Preparing the Cutting

Once you have chosen cutting, remove the leaves from the lower half to two-thirds of the stem.

The Propagation Process

Soil and Container Selection

Bougainvillea prefers well-draining soil, so choose a mix that combines potting soil with perlite or sand.

Light and Temperature

Place your potted cutting in a location that receives bright, indirect sunlight.
