I've done that Pam so hope they will turn out ok. I have brought parent plant in now . Thank you .
The greenhouses are now ready for the Winter
This is my cuttings greenhouse as from yesterday
I can see you being very busy come Spring, Pam. I wish I was as organised as you . Looking forward to seeing the results next year which I'm sure will be as stunning as this year.
very jealous Pam
Thankyou Glyn and Bev
Lots of the cuttings have now rooted including some of the ones I did in pure Perlite
Lets see if I can keep them going through the Winter
I thought you might like to see the roots of one of the Perlite cuttings of Laurentia

Looking good as always Pam. I've used perlite for cuttings this year too with great results.
Pam this is very impressive, is it 100% perlite, how frequently did you water?
Kate I did keep the Perlite moist and I know the cuttings will have to be potted on soon to keep them growing well - not a lot of goodness in Perlite !
Pam thanks for that, I will be interested in long term progress.
Well done Pam. I still have a Cobaea that's hanging on by the skin of it's teeth outside. Up to now it's seemed to survive everything that nature's thrown at it . Be interesting to see what happens.
My baby basils are doing very well.
Thanks for the update.
Pam do you prefer perlite or vermiculite?
Thankyou Jean,Bunnysgarden and Kate
Kate - I prefer vermiculite to mix in the compost and for putting on top of seeds when I have sown them but the perlite seems better with the cuttings
