Just caught the thread before everyone goes over to Evenng Forkers. Been to a pub for lunch on Tesco points - lovely, too - then GC. It was pouring with rain and I was wearing sandals, so I was kept from temptation regarding new plants, so I just bought a book on euphorbias (reduced) and a couple of birthday cards. Still raining, but it does make the garden look lovely in a particular way. No walkies for the dogs in this rain, which pleases one and disappoints the other.
Was thinking about taking cuttings as we drove along, wondering whether I had left it a bit late. I'm glad to hear that I haven't. I bought some young penstemons by post this year and lost all but one, althouhgh my other seedlings did well. Got a couple of replacements from Hayloft and they died as well. So I'll try cuttings from my existing plants, as well as fuchsias and dianthus.
