when do i take root cuttings of Japanese anemones?

Posted: 16/04/2014 at 23:08

I have a few you young plants in 2 litre pots. When should I take cuttings? Autumn,whilst it is warm or when it's dormant(if we have a winter this year!)?

what are you propagating?

I would like to propagate my new Japanese anemones from root cuttings,is it best in spring with an established plant,or should I wait til late summer/autumn?

Osteospermum problem

Posted: 14/04/2014 at 23:41

I take it your osteospurmum is a ground covering hardy type? Mine is spreading quite a bit,I have trimmed some of it back already. I wasn't shy. And it is ok. I would do it when it isn't too hot. Try not to cut too much of the old woody bit.

I think it's pheasant tail grass. So I imagine clumps here and there would look good?

I don't like thinning as I don't want to get rid of any plants.

I am new to ornamental grass so this year hopefully I will learn a lot.

I can't remember what grass it is off the top of my head. It does look like I have some work cut out tomorrow. I think I will put some in small pots,some in a clump in big pots and then dot some around the garden.

Cheers,I feel less silly now.

I am used to flower seedlings with their true leaves,not ornamental grass seedlings,so during germination when do I prick out?

Do these look ok to prick out?

I have joined freecycle and have found someone in my area that way.

Never mind,I know people on this website,basically gardeners in general,are really kind. I just hope that somebody on here lives in the area.

Hi all,I am wondering if anyone has spare(free) top soil in the area as I am creating a secret raised garden for my little girls?

I am hoping that my admiration for nature and gardening can pass on to my children.

I am new to this thread but here is my decking and part of my garden in spring.


 


 It looks better in the flesh,it's difficult to take a photo on the kindle.

I have planted some hellebore seedlings down the back of the play house with cow parsley. In summer I am hoping that sweet peas and clematis are all over the house.

I love my pots. Last year the tulips were up in the middle of June! I have crocuses first then lots of tulips with the odd hyacinth. Good old lasagne planting. It pleases my wife every day looking from our kitchen window.
