New varieties

If you have a plant that shows unusual growth – such as a shoot that shows different or unusual characteristics to the rest of the plant – it may be worth propagating from this. If this change is stable and continues through three or four further generations, then you may be on to a winner and may have a brand new variety. This is how many new plant varieties arise.
