Bowles Mauve

Took cuttings for the first time, last year  I'm sort of addicted to it now. Don't know if I need any more but I'm sure they will find a home somewhere

Like it LesleyK, I have plenty of them. Like a sort of sleeve?

One of my Bowles Mauve, is very bushy and as yet doesn't have any flowering stems. Looks like it would be very propagation material, I seem to remember doing this later this year and maybe used a plastic bag over them.

The cuttings will live in a plastic greenhouse which is doing it's job well, but can get a lot of condensation. Is giving the bags a miss a good idea?

Thanks

The 2nd one is creeping buttercup, very invasive weed, I'd get rid of that.

Hollyhock seedlings stopped growing

Sorry LenaN, just seen your reply. Yes I would have thought it would be ok, it might start growing faster. It is small so a sheltered spot away from the worst of the rain and wind until it gets bigger and stronger. Just watch out for slugs and snails

Maybe a local conservation/wildlife charity. Might be worth contacting local hospitals or charities

Hollyhock seedlings stopped growing

Your seedlings will do better outdoors now, more light as the days are longer. Hollyhocks are hardy plants so can cope. Just harden them off by taking them outside in the day for a couple of days and then leave them out.

 

Any one planted out their runners?

Runners have been planted, will keep an eye on the temps
