Maybe Heuchera, they come in lovely warm shades. Then you can divide/split them and make loads more. I have just done that.

Lupin suggestions please

Posted: 15/08/2014 at 17:31

My soil is very acid, on the edge of Dartmoor and the lupins are fantasic on this soil. 

But yes, you can save the seeds when they are black and rattle in the pods. I think maybe its a bit late to sow them, maybe in the Spring.

See what others say. They will be very small plants by the winter and will need lots of care.

Please confirm these are greens of some type...

KG thank you for that lovely post, I am very lucky to still have my parents at my age, and even luckier that they allowed us to build this lovely big extension onto their bungalow. 

Dad use to keep the garden lovely, but it had gone to rack and ruin really, all he could do was keep the grass cut with a ride on. 

So we have all benifited by this move. Them having us living close and me getting a dream garden to do absolutely what I like .

Please dont rush with the cuttings, as you say, no hurry to plant them.

bekkie, Her garden is small, the front bit, so maybe 2 just in case one dies.

I am posting some campanula out today so will dig the geranium root up as well.
