Propagation Methods

At The Achiltibuie Garden we raise almost all of our plants from seed or cuttings using our Gold hydroponic growing medium. Gold growing medium is our own special mix of perlite and vermiculite with balanced nutrients and trace elements, which is ideal for propagation. We find that it has a much higher success rate for germination and rooting of cuttings than ordinary composts and also reduces the risk of "damping off" and other fungal problems. Once germinated, salad and herbs can be grown on in the same pot whilst larger plants which need more space can be transplanted into a hydroponic growing system or into soil.
