Sorry I don't know, many of them seem to look the same, but it is very pretty.

Plastic Greenhouses

Does anyone else winter cuttings in a plastic greenhouse?  My garden is small and just big enough for a plastic greenhouse.  This time of year I line it out with horticultural fleece and keep my fingers crossed for the cuttings.  I have done this for about five years and although I do lose some I usually manage to keep a fair amount of geranium cuttings and some fuchias (except for the really bad winter last but one, and then I lost them all), but I was wondering if anyone else did the same and if so maybe had some tips to pass on.

 Hi, I bought mine from a plant fair at Burton Agnes but have seen them in garden centres usually in pots already flowering.  Would imagine the internet could help with names of nurseries.  Mine haven't done very well this year, no sign of flowers.

Zona, your photo is lovely, didn't realise there were so many different shades to be had.  I also didn't realise how tall they grow.  Needless to say mine are all in the wrong places.  Will put it right next year.

Purity seem to be a popular one so will look for some to sow next year.  I will also try doing stem cutting and see what happens.  Thanks for the tip.

Thanks for the information.  I have collected afew seed heads of the fuchia coloured plants and will be looking out for the seed packets so that I can sow more next year.  They are beautiful plants.  Will also look out for a chocolate cosmos if it is perennial.

That 's right, I remember reading it and intend to collect the seed to try next year.  Many thanks.

Aren't you lucky, having chaffinches and robins in your garden.  We have sparrows and starlings but still love to watch their antics fighting for the food.  My husband feeds the birds but the feeders are over pavers so are easy to clean.

The smell is glorious and with a bit of luck with my pruning I'm hoping for lots of flowers next year.

Thanks Dovefromabove, the rose is Etoile d'Hollande.  I have just been on the link you provided which is very informative.  Am now going out to see about tying in the branches,
