Question

Describe the layering method for the artificial propagation of plants. Illustrate your answer with the help of a labelled diagram. Name any five plants which are propagated by the layering method.

Solution

In the layering method, one of the branches of a plant is pulled down into the ground and covered with moist soil in such a way that the tip of the branch remains above the surface. After a few days, new roots start growing from the part buried in the soil. This part of the branch is then separated from the parent plant to let it develop into a new plant.

Plants which can be propagated by the layering method are jasmine, lemon, guava, strawberry, raspberry, etc.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
