Layering Definition from Encyclopedia Dictionaries & Glossaries
English Wikipedia - The Free Encyclopedia
Layering is a means of plant propagation in which a portion of an aerial stem grows roots while still attached to the parent plant and then detaches as an independent plant. Layering has evolved as a common means of vegetative propagation of numerous species in natural environments. Layering is also utilized by horticulturists to propagate desirable plants.
