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

@pam.. a lady after my own heart.. i am never happier then when in garden.. i did cuttings yesterday and hope to carry on today.. i did vebenia rigida,  perrenial wallflowers, penstemons, apple blossom geranium, buddehlia... loads more to do today for next year.

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
