How To Propagate Camellias: Air Layering Method

There are several ways to propagate camellias, today I’m sharing the air layering method with my readers. Air layering isn’t exclusive to camellias. Just about any woody shrub or tree can be air layered. This process involves producing a genetically identical plant from a parent plant. This can also be accomplished by taking cuttings and rooting them, but that method can take much longer to produce the same size plant that you would get within the year by air layering. By air layering a branch from your camellia, you can easily have a multi branch plant that is a couple of feet tall.
