Good Morning Everyone

I didn't have time to make the cake yesterday Lottie - will try today

Kate - I do mix vermiculite or perlite in with the compost- the reason I use trays is because I am greedy and want lots moreplants I use pots for some things

I never have much luck with fuchsia cuttings at this time of year so I cut the plants back ,take all the foliage off and hang them in the greenhouse.By February they have usually made lots of lovely new growth and that is when I take my cuttings

I have to get the greenhouses in some sort of order today - our Son will be doing the watering while we are away

Our Grandaughter Lily- who has cerebral palsy which affects her walkng-  went to watch the Equestrian event yesterday - she told her Daddy she would like to be in the Paralympics 2024  Bless her little cotton socks

See you later !

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
