   Morning Ben, I do blame the weather.. nothing supernatural...

the simple need to be out there doing what we like best - gardening and sharing our experiences the meantime we plan, visit gc's and imagine..

Look at those lovely Gallery photos - that's what it's all about.

 let it's too short...

Hydranga cutting

Never tried with cuttings, be interested to hear how they take...

Dont have agreen house...had success by layering...

choose a stem close to ground...gently manouvre to bend into ground..once you can see where the stem will touch the earth..scrape the underside to reveal green growth..bury that part or the stem in the soil..peg it down (or use stone to hold into ground)

within a year the new roots will have appeared on the 'scraped' stem plant. 

Plant has nutrients from 'mother' plant and soil from the start.

Only have room for one in this's a beauty

That's interesting 'geoff...checked my, not ignoring myself or anyone, but still getting the squashed tomato insteasd of posts..

Hi, WW... I joined this week and up until yesterday all was ok. I still wonder if it was the joker who messed up the thread 'mornign forkers'.

..however it appears that the tech team are aware of the problems but it's taking a long time to sort out.

This is a good thread BB. 

Checking out clematis this week saw the Crocus adverts and spent time browsing but not sure beacause of the prices..

yesterday went to local gc and found lots of varieties in the different groups (1,2 etc)...good price, friendly staff

weeather permitting on Sunday plan to visit clematis specialist in Tenbury Wells..

...haven't discounted Aldi

really enjoy this aspect of choosing plants and appreciating the advice...

Is it worth having a garden professionally designed?
