There is only one logical way to get a plant that you have seen in a neighbor’s garden and you simply cannot live without: go begging for a cutting or division!

Be flattering and complacent, but insistent too, and you shouldn’t have any trouble wheedling it out of them. Of course, if the only way to get it is to get down on your knees and cry like a baby … well, it takes what it takes!

Garden writer and blogger, author of 65 gardening books, lecturer and communicator, the Laidback Gardener, Larry Hodgson, passed away in October 2022. Known for his great generosity, his thoroughness and his sense of humor, he reached several generations of amateur and professional gardeners over his 40-year career. Thanks to his son, Mathieu Hodgson, and a team of contributors, will continue its mission of demystifying gardening and making it more accessible to all.
