Plants such as African violets can be propagated by taking a leaf cutting. Tips are also given for softwood and hardwood cuttings. Plus, James explains the difference between chemical sprays and dusts and demonstrates how to install and use drip irrigation. Finally, the Gardener Guy cooks up some fried green tomatoes.
