Preparing Tea Tree Clones

In a previous post, Where the Trees Come From, we posted about how the tea tree clones are rooted. This post will take a quick look at how the clones are prepared.

First new growth from a mother tree is collected. The raw cuttings are then trimmed to contain one healthy leaf, at least one dormant bud, and a small piece of stem that will grow the roots.

It is a group effort!
