Thé easy way (to me) to propagate Toona IS by Doing a Root cutting ! It seems to regrow faster than other plants liké that, even with a pièce as small as a thumb !

Can anyone tell me if you have différents variety ? I read there is a red one?!

Hi there,

At thé beginning of winter i put 2 or 3 Big shovel of soil on thé bottom of m'y plants (so to protect thé base of thé plants)... Thé week before thé first frost i had some straw for a better protection...
Thén at thé worst of thé winter i put some manure... During thé next few weeks/month thé température will raise (because of dégradation of thé manure) and get thé plants through thé end of winter!

Narbonne (south of France)
