I'm Travis Steglich from Steglich Farm Supply Incorporated and we're in the process of making some cuttings of a verbena. We already gathered the runners and if you'll notice on the bottom of this one in particular this is a little growth that is a root. This particular runner had it been lying on the ground it would be rooted down to the soil so in order to take a cutting of this. That is really a no brainer we're going to cut each side of that and put it in the soil just like so, just below the surface a little bit not far at all. I'll take several more we'll put them in this container the same way and here's another that a way if one of these doesn't make it the other will surely will. This verbena I had for at least ten years and it's one of the best growing and really one of the perennials that I've seen last as long.
