I read recently (but threw the paper out!) that frangipani can be cut at
this time of year (winter in southern Australia) and that all you have to do
is cut it and dry it for a couple of weeks before planting it. Somehow, I
feel I've forgotten some of the crucial parts, such as: should I stick the
cutting in hormone gel before planting? Should I put it in a particular type
of soil? Does it love sunshine/shade?
I DO remember reading that you make sure the white milky substance that
oozes from the cut must be kept away from the eyes (but hey, I usually don't
insert foreign liquids in my eyes anyway!) and children. That goes for
animals too, I guess.
Anyway, any advice on getting some cuttings from this plant would be greatly
appreciated. It was going great guns until winter, when it started getting a
bit cold and tired. I've since protected it from the cold winds with a clear
plastic surround, which seems to have halted its decline.
