Kate - I haven't taken cuttings of  the Cuphea  Tiny Mice plant but I don't see why you can't - have a go - they have two chances

Thankyou for the recipe Lottie - I will try it tomorrow

Jean - not all my cuttings succeed but they are well worth the try  I would never be able to be so OTT with my front garden if I had to buy all the plants

sowed seeds for my foxglovesvarious colours, maltease cross, primroses, polyanthus and cowslips.

and i always listen to Radio 2.. takes me back..

gardeningfanatic - have you taken cuttings of Verbena rigida before? The reason I ask is that I bought a plant this year and absolutely love it  I listen to radio 4 - like the plays and listening to all the discussions that go right over my head
