yeah..very hot was 23 yesterday here and getting hotter.. i had to hose the garden last night as everything is drooping.. and the lawn almost all brown now.. except in the shaded garden it still hanging in there. we have not had rain since 2 august and that was not much.. and some weeks before that when had it last.  butts are empty now and getting desperate over here.

@christopher2... thanks for that info.. i will try cuttings.. they are much faster.. but i never always kow when to take them.. i assume when they are in full shooting or growing mode is when i do most of mine or when i am dead heading..and for splitting my astrantias.. i assume it is just same as splitting primulas and many otehr plants.. i will give that a go.. never thought of that with them
