How to plant Duranta shrubs in Uganda

When you’re planning to propagate Duranta, you need to acquire already established seedling from a nursery bed operator. 

Alternatively you may raise your seedlings but would take you some time before you get the seedlings.

To raise a seedling take cuttings about 6-10 cm long just below a node on the stem of an already existing Duranta. 

Make sure the cutting comes from healthy stock. 

Remove most of the leaves on each cutting leaving about 3 healthy leaves at the top. 

Place the cutting in a green house or in a cover for 3-4 weeks to allow it to root and have new sprout. 

After doing all this there is one routine you need to adhere to and that watering the cutting.

After you have acquired a seedling, dig a hole of about 60 cm deep. 

Mix 2 parts of top soil with 1 part of compost and add it in the bottom of the hole. 

Then remove the seedling and place it into the hole. 

Water the seedling regularly to reduce on the transplanting shock. 

Then wait patiently as you watch your Duranta grow vigorously.
