definition of layering

Many artificial methods are developed to propagate plants vegetatively. Layering is one such artificial method of vegetative propagation.

Layering: This involves bending of a young stem towards the ground and burying it under the soil for development of roots . After a period of time, as the roots develop, the bent stem is cut off from the parent plant. This acts as a new plant. e.g. Jasmine.
