One of the methods used to propagate plants by division and multiplication through the stolons.These are creeping stems that arise at the base of the stem of some plants (called stoloniferous plants), from whose nodes roots and leaves are born.Typical examples of stoloniferous plants are strawberries, the Saxifraga stolonifera, the Trifolium repens and many others.

The technique consists in bending a branch down and burying it at a distance of 20-30 cm. If you are unable to keep the branch underground, help yourself with a fork or place a stone on the ground where the branch is buried. It is necessary to always keep the soil moist and wait for the roots to form (usually after a few weeks). Once the stolon has rooted and developed new shoots, it is cut, thus separating the new seedling from the mother plant. The new plants can remain on site or be stretched to be used elsewhere.

This type of reproduction occurs in the period of greatest vegetative activity of the plant (spring-summer).
