I just worry that I won't fit them in my greenhouse if I pot them on again. I have cuttings galore filling 9cm pots all in a bread tray, I hope that they keep over winter. I have lythrum, coreopsis, fuschia, scabiosa, gayser gaura, climbing fuschia, bush fuschia, pelargonium. phostegia or something like that name. Green wizard rudbeckia are all in 4 cm modules, pansies furiously growing on for planting (I don't know when)


liatris is baby seedlings just getting true leaves!

Verdun - mission unsucessful!! His seed heads are not ready so wasn't the right time. Although he has a penstemon like the pictured one above so thinking cutting or seed!!!
