Issues with petrol strimmer

Posted: 14/05/2016 at 18:22

When to take cuttings from Hydrangeas

Posted: 12/05/2016 at 13:37

Hydrangea cuttings are easy Elizabeth. You can take softwood, semi-hardwood or hardwood cuttings. Personally I like softwood cuttings for hydrangea, so as soon as you have enough new growth go for it. I do use hormone rooting powder for them.

Far more likely to be penstemon looking at the thickness of those woody stems.
