in my greenhouse back in June without success not one took.
I have since grown aqalegas from seed back in May which are now about
4 inches high and ready to prick out from. seed tray and into pots.

im sure that this is what i removed from close proximity to my lupines or something very similar its a very sticky feathery plant and as everyone says a real bugger to eradicate.

Great thanks for your help i already have about 6 in pots but alas not not around the edges but  in  the center and not covered although they are in a greenhouse But i,ll take some more cuttings and try your method incidently what difference does it make planting them around the edges of a pot?? something thats always intrigued me but if that works great, ive also heard that its best to to  cut through the leaf along the vein as this lets more light in and more nutrients.  kind regards Johnny1
