And cuttings don't need feeding until they've been potted on a couple of times and even then not until they've exhausted the feed in the compost.  

What sort of cuttings are you taking and what sort of compost are you planning to use ... just out of interest

Golly gosh, is it four years since you moved there Fairy?  It only seems like yesterday. 

Sorry, didn't I explain ......... although move has been delayed until 24th August (ish) the house needed a serious sort out ... since marriage break up stuff has just been put in cupboards and left  ... remember he and ex ran a business from home ... he didn't have the heart to sort it ... it needed someone who could harden her heart a bit, so after he and I had talked through what to do with various categories of 'stuff' he went off to work and a friend of his and I turned out two big walk-in cupboards (think small rooms) that were full to the ceiling with 'stuff'.   We filled the skip ... another skip is coming tomorrow.  His friend is going to go again on Thursday ... he says he'll be fine without me.  I'll go again next Tuesday (ish) and then that'll be most of it done ... bar the furniture and precious stuff.  

Now I'm home, am the right side of a large G&T and am just about to eat a delicious smelling supper prepared by OH 

Better have a read back ................
