I had a quick check on the slug pubs again this morning. Another massacre outside. seem to be none in greenhouse or polytunnel, or maybe they're waiting for something better.

Bills orchid looks like a cattleya or dendrobium, maybe.

 I'm currently stuck inside at work and everyone who comes in tells me it's gorgeous outside.

what are you propagating?

I do erysimum cuttings later on in the year, around August time , so that they have good roots before the winter.

Try and use unflowered shoots.

oriental poppies

I dug up an oreiental poppy because it was in the wrong place. It just fell into bits. I potted up each shoot with a bit of root and they aare now growing well, but probably won't flower this year. My others have flower buds in so  I think its a bit late to move them.

What's this plant?

I dont know what is is, but its not Jap Knot weed.

What are these I potted up?

I think the big one at the front is a phlox. Is the red stemmed one a cornus of some sort?
