propagation of alpine plants: different methods There are three methods of propagating alpine plants and these are very similar to those used for other garden plants. They are: (a) raising from the seed which many alpines produce in copious quantities; (b) increasing by lifting and dividing old plants; (c) rooting from cuttings made from soft growth tips, either before or after the plants.

Once plants get underway in spring, take cuttings from stems with new leaf growth. Dip the ends into rooting hormone and place into potting medium. Once roots are established and the cuttings begin to grow, you may plant them permanently. Propagation by cuttings is one way to reproduce the traits of a cultivar or hybrid.
