Lilylouise - your garden is an inspiration and I marvel at your dedication! I would like to ask a question about how you pot up your cuttings. I always put cuttings around the edge of pots and this works quite well. I notice, though, that you use modular trays and put the cuttings into the middle of each module. Is this a more reliable method?
Hello boozysuzy I use allsorts to put my cuttings in - I am very greedy so that is why I use tryas and modules - I do use pots the same way you do ,though I always take more cuttings than I need so it doesn't matter if some fail. This year i am experimenting with cuttings in neat Perlite - someone told me about this method and I tried a few cuttings of Laurentia last year and they were very successful
Today I have taken cuttings of Felicia, Sanvitalia, Plectranthus,Cobaeas, more Verbenas,more trailing Geraniums,more African Blue basil and more New Guinea Impatiens
