Growing new plants from cuttings is a great activity during the autumn and winter when there may not be a lot else to do in the garden. It helps if you have a good supply of "parent" plants as we have in the greenhouse at St Johns.
Plants such as spider plants and Aloe Vera are good candidates as are herbs such as Rosemary. There is plenty of advice about how to do this online and we have had really good results, particularly with house plants like spider plants. Children can take plants home and look after them there or keep them in school but, either way, there is potential for them to have their own plant which many really value.
