Fuchsia cuttings

Posted: 26/10/2012 at 15:19

Karen - I always trim my fuchsia plants back a bit at the end of the summer and take all the foliage off,too. I am lucky that I have a greenhouse but if I didn't I would put my plant on a light windowsill for the winter and check every few days for the watering- keeping the plant just ticking over.By Spring there should be lots of new growth that would make lovely cuttings

Good Morning Geoff and Glyn Good morning everyone

Another dank and dismal day I think

Yesterday I cleared out my dressing table  drawers- today my Son is taking me to a Garden Centre

Love the cakes - I will probably have our Grandchildren for a day next week - we could make some spooky cakes

Have a lovely day !

 Last year I sowed a pkt of Valentine Sunflowers and when they flowered one of the plants had yellow flowers so I saved some seeds - they have been gorgeous

how can i delete my post

what decade is your garden?

Posted: 22/10/2012 at 06:51

We have had our garden for about 25 years and were lucky that it was a blank canvas so that we could do what we wanted. It has changed many times over the years and just evolved to what it is today. We still change bits that we aren't happy with but really do love our garden - I know it isn't  to everyones taste  I used to grow bedding like  Muvs neighbours but for a few years now I have grown Bee friendly bedding plants and right through the year there are plants flowering in the for the Bees to enjoy so I hope we are doing our bit for Bee conservation
