Talkback: How to take semi-ripe cuttings from herbs

Posted: 24/10/2013 at 19:52
I took some cuttings last year and they were looking good with new leaves coming. Then they all died. What do you think went wrong?

 Thank you, Alina.  I'll see if they come off in the morning.  If they don't, I'll prune out the stems with them on, I think.

. I crunch them underfoot without a thought, and chop slugs in half.  At least its a quicker death than the blue pellets

scale insect on clematis

last year my clematis alpina 'Frankie' was covered in brown scale insects all up the stems.  I sprayed them with Provado, but how doo you know when they are dead??  They look dead anyway and they haven't dropped off.  Now that its the right time to prune it, I was wondering whether to cut the whole plant down to the ground and let it grow up again.  Any ideas?

Talkback: Cleavers

Be careful removing cleavers by hand. Last year some wrapped itself round my wrist and I came up in nasty blisters which took weeks to heal and left a dark brown scar all summer.
