Geraniums

if you shake all the dirt off the roots and hang them upside down in a dark frost free place you can then repot them next spring-main thing is absence of light. i put mine in brown paper bags so the leaves arent so messy.

root cuttings normally aren't made with the tap root itself but with the new roots that branch from it-the mother plant also usually survives. but who can tell, gardening is a constant voyage of discovery. however. the best way to propagate lupins is in the spring from basal cuttings-same as delphiniums , poppies,foxgloves

service 503 unavailable means that the server-gw's in this case- is at capacity for a moment-seconds or minutes later it clears and your pictures-which are fairly high bitpieces can go through
