Passion flower cutting wont root

Looks like you're another victim of the dreaded 'Auto-correct' Aym   -  scraping off some of the Cambrian Layer would be a bit excessive and not very helpful 

What I'm sure Aym tried to say is the 'cambium layer' - the layer between the 'bark' and the 'wood'.

Shall I do the i***ing first and then pot on the cucumbers .......... or the other way around? 

When I've had another coffee of course .......

Have given up now Pansy  ... drinking coffee and finding jobs to do ... I've got the dentist this afternoon so that's a few hours 'wasted' so I might as well get ahead now ..........

Morning folks  
No, my bodyclock hasn't woken me up - the phone did   it was the automated alarm system at the farm shop where OH works - he's a key holder - I couldn't let him cycle up there on his own to see what had triggered the alarm so I pulled some clothes on and we drove up there ... no sign of any intruders or anything ................. but of course we're both WIDE AWAKE now ...

there was a beautiful sunrise tho'

You can cut it hard back to keep it within bounds - it will recover

If you layer a shoot now you'll have a plant ready to plant out next spring.

I find that layering a growing shoot is the best way to propagate passionflowers - here is a video with a pretty good demonstration of what to do
