I am in exactly the same position. I thought that the problem was that the cold stopped them growing and it was then difficult to start them off again.

Talkback: Taking geranium cuttings

I was always told that the edge of the pot had better drainage, so the cutting is less likely to rot. I believe this is also why old hands prefer terracotta.

I think I am panicking about missing the April window. One minute you are getting ahead of yourself the next you are going into May with a garden full of weeds.

Thanks for the advice Geoff, I am just a little garden fidgety.

I have just been reading the weather predictions for the next month, the house is looking like a greenhouse and it seems like it will be a while before I can get stuff outside.

Damp  here but it also feels quite warm.

I have a gardening dilemma, another castor oil seed has germinated but the seed coating is attatched, do I help it along or let it sort itself out?

I am trying some dwarf ones this year. I wanted to see if they would work in pots in the front of the house. 

I have Royal Family for the back garden.

Miserable day here, I cannot shift my cold, almost glad that it is not gardening weather.

Good news, another of my castor oil seeds has germinated, I just need to keep this one alive.

Geoff have they still not put the fire out?

Repartee, what a lovely word.

I am still feeling grim, there was so much I had planned to do in the garden this week. I should have checked the forecast.
