You’ve gathered an awesome collection of houseplants, learning how to care for each and every one (with a few casualties along the way!) but what next? Propagation - the art and science of making more plants from the ones you already have - is a great way of getting to know your plants better, bulking up your collection and providing gifts for friends and family.

I interview Rose Ray and Caro Langton of green interiors firm Ro Co about their new book Root, Nurture, Grow. From leaf cuttings to air layering, it covers the tips and techniques that will help you improve your cuttings hit rate.

We begin with a bit of a distraction - talking about our dogs Huxley and Wolfie - and the wonderful charity that is The Cinnamon Trust - before getting onto discussing the book. I find out why they decided to focus on propagation for their subject matter, why they love grafting cacti, and which little-known propagation techniques we should all be adopting.
