Rebirth Posted byM. A. PhillipsMay 31, 2012May 31, 2012Posted inDruidismTags:gardening, Nature Spirits A gardening tip I learned recently: if you accidentally break a tomato plant, you can put the broken bit in a jar of water and it will form roots. It’s magical and I now have two tomato plants instead of one! Share this:EmailTwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading... Related Published by M. A. Phillips An author and Druid living in Northern NY.

This same method (trick) will work on almost every plant known to the home gardener.

Thanks! I was always under the impression that it wouldn’t work with all plants and that some sort of rooting enzyme was needed. Perhaps that’s only some varieties. I was so happy to save the tomato plant. I already felt bad about accidentally breaking it…
Great grandma would dip the stem of a cutting she wanted to root in Honey, plant in a small pot, keep it damp, not wet, setting in a north window until it started putting out new growth. Honey acts as a root stimulator. (google willow water as a root stimulator as well)
Happy summer gardening
