Bowles Mauve Cutting

Good luck with them, I've got to do some more as a back up in case the ones I've got don't make it.

Think I heard that it's best if the bag doesn't touch the leaves and mine last year took a while to root.

Bowles Mauve Cutting

I took some last year which on the whole came through. Take a non flowering stem if possible, remove the leaves leaving the top ones. I did the bottom of the stem in rooting hormone, this is optional. Place the stems round the edge of the pot, water. Cover with a clear bag, like the freezer ones and place out of direct sunlight.

Take the bag off in a couple of days and leave alone.

I took some a few weeks ago which are looking ropey as I think they got to much sun on them. When I take the cutting material I place them in one of the freezer bags with a zip top to keep the moisture in.

Always best to take quite a few, so a few failures aren't so dissapointing

I water all my little plants like this, for all the reasons Bob says but also it saves me time as I don't need to do it so often

I don't really do a lot of summer pots but have just planted a few. Lobelia, some trailing stock and some night scented stock for the evening fragrance.

Anyone done any gardening today?
