Sown a few seeds snapdragons poppies and some veg. I did try some autumn sowings of some annuals and they are still alive.
Took some Bowles Mauve cuttings late last Summer I think. Dipped some in hormone rooting powder and some without and just left them. Most of them took, think the ones with rooting powder are probably better plants, but the ones without are doing ok as well. I have been potting them on and they seem to be growing really fast There were some on sale in a garden centre for £8 each! I've still got my original two, not looking their best now, but waiting for my little ones to grow so I can replace them.
I also had a go at taking cutting from some sweet rockets last year. I was replanting the original plant and reducing it's height and on one of the stems there were loads of offshoots so I cut them off and stuck them in some soil. I think they have taken as there as new green leaves, not roots at the bottom though
