Cuttings need to be in the shade at this time of year rather than needing heat and bright sunlight.
I keep mine on a low wall against a north facing fence - then a cold frame in the winter to keep the worst of the wet and cold off them - but you can easily make one with some old bricks or blocks and an old window or two.
An assortment of colour and texture combinations at Barnsdale and a few familiar bits of architecture etc
This last one's for Punkdoc - to prove that he's not the only one to support his plants a wee bit later than is ideal
Yes, it's perfectly possible to take cuttings of most hardy plants without a greenhouse although a cold frame is useful.
Starting off with lavender is a good idea - lots of info here http://www.gardenersworld.com/how-to/projects/creative-projects/how-to-take-lavender-cuttings/176.html
Tell us what else you have in your garden and we can make some more suggestions about cuttings that are relatively easy - you'll soon have more plants than you know what to do with
I agree with Fidget - just take them off - tomato plants are individuals, and just like people some respond just a little bit differently to similar conditions
My lawn is full of it
Hi techiebabe - you can't cut & paste pics onto this forum, but if you click on the tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post you can upload pics from a pc.
Sadly it doesn't work for phones .... yet
I don't know that one Fidget - it's very well named if the colour reproduction on the link is accurate
When you say 'bare root' I take it that it's now been planted in a pot or at least planted somehow Any tree with bare roots at this time of year is unlikely to survive
How lovely - haven't seen any for years! I once saw dozens on a large expanse of ragwort on the dunes at Walberswick - never forgotten the sight
That's just what I do - I know some people use it more frequently.
