HELLO FORKERS!

Its been sunny here this afternoon. I have taken cuttings off my white daisy argyranthemum. The amazing thing is that I took them from plants that have been in the garden alll winter, instead of the one I lifted and kept inside.

I've also potted up some more torchwood aquilegia seedlings. Dunno where I'm going to put them all.

I suppose someone will take them off my hands.

Don't forget GW is back at 8.30 on Beeb 2

The brugmansias are cuttings off cuttings off my avatar.  They should all come pink.  The trumpets are about a foot long. My mum has a yellow one as well.  The ones in my greenhouse still look like sticks, but they always come back. think of them like a tender buddleja. cut it down in Autumn (and shove the cuttings in a jar of water), overwinter on the dry side and frost free, then when it sprouts, feed it and water well, and give it a sunny position.

Since joining GW forum,I have been overwhelmed with all the support & advise

I think that where the forum scores,is that it puts like minded people together. Amongst my friends, i am the odd one....the one they come to for advice when their garden needs sorting out, but I can't really enthuse about things.

My "friends on the forum", however share knowledge and enthusiasm for plants and gardens.

spring is coming

The chestnuts will be fine outside. I think they would be too warm inside.

Calla lily will suffer from frost and should stay inside for now.

Foxgloves. A packet of seed will give you plenty of plants. A garden near me was filled with them last year (I think they were camelot series).It looked gorgeous.

  Dalmation Peach will give you flowers this year, but mostly you sow foxgloves this year to give flowers next year. Once you have them they will seed themselves.
