HELLO FORKERS!

Himself has got a two day job in Aarhus ,Denmark, next week, so I'm going to go with him to keep him off the danish pastries. There is a big botanical garden near the hotel so I can go wandering. Will I need my thermal underwear do you think? Its ryanair, so not much luggage allowance.

Start new plants by taking cuttings from the green  tips. They root easily in gritty compost. I find they are like lavender, in that if you cut back hard into brown wood, they will not resprout.

We didnt see humpbacks at Monterey, but we saw them a few weeks previously off Rottnest island in Western Australia. I haven't seen a great white in the flesh yet.

Advice please :-)

If the roots fill the pots, i would plant them in their final position and let them get established before winter. If they flower, ok, but I would concentrate on building up the plant to give a good display next year.

Wilko had some, and linkstakes as well. Very solid. When I went back for more, they had sold out. Next year I will get more early on in the season.

Lamb and roasties and green beans eaten. Now watching big blue live from Monterey. It's 15 years since we went there. We saw elephant seals near big sur, and the otters and sea lions near Monterey. Monterey bay aquarium is the ultimate aquarium.

There are rooted cuttings available in Spring, from garden centres. Also lidl had some this year. Grown on in the big pots ,15inch at least, feed and water. Cuttings will root in water over winter. The plant can be cut down and overwintered frost free, October . I will see if I can get some photos of mine as they are now.

Weyeriana are usually more yellow but that one has more pinky purple.
