@flobear.. stop it.. you are giving me the ebbie gibbies.. making me itch...

love hte pheasant

@hollie-hock.. if you like i can send you a cutting when they have taken off.. but as i said before it hasnt been as easy to propagate as the others.. i have a dark knight one and a pale pink one i can send you.. they last years cuttings and a little scraggley looking..but in flower..  but put it in the ground and it will take off.. they are in 1/2 litre pots..if you like.

@flobear.. i just take the stems when i have cut down it down.. and find one with a node where new shoots come out.. take off leaves upto the that.. and remove large leaves above down to the node ones... cut to about 3ins min. and then  dip in rooting compound and stick in the pot.. i get about 5 out of every 8 i do.. that is the way i have always done it.. will go get a piccie of mine so you can see hollie..
