I get most of my pots for free at a local nursery, you can just take them away. Car boot sales are good places as well

I've only taken clem cuttings once before. I think I dapped the end with hormone rooting powder and then planted it near the edge of the pot and forgot about it.

It did root but took a while maybe a few months? I've gradually potted it on and one of them has now been planted in the garden.

Good luck with yours, that sounds a nice one

Beautiful pictures Gardengirl and Matty. Particularly the wall flowers.

I've got a straggly wallflower, primoses, grape hyacinths and a dodgy looking daff. It's a start. Oh and the start of a flower bud on a hardy geranium

It will interesting to see the flowers, does it have leaves that are a bit waxy to touch?

Not long sown mine OL. Your patch is going to look very pretty, always good to grow lots of plants that you like and plant together

Anyone done any gardening today?

Not a lot done, but did sow some cornflowers and a bit of pottering, lovely day to be outside. Can't believe Monty was sowing his beetroot, I'd better get a move on

It's a good attempt I've read about them but never used or made one. You putting the remaining cosmos in it? Be good if it worked

Hi Nut, the third one like it could be familiar (not much help I know) Can't help thinking that it looks like it will develop blousy yellow flowers? Something about the white veins.

I can't enlarge the picture to have a better look
