Would Perlite do or must it be Vermiculite Richard.

Pelargoniums (common geraniums) cuttings - where am in going wrong?

Posted: 06/03/2016 at 14:43

No rooting powder for them, I don't wait for them to dry, some do.

mine just go into any compost, mustn't water too much though. Take nice big stemmed cuttings, strip off the bottom leaves so they don't make contact with the compost, and make sure you push the compost so it's tight around the stem. I only ever put them on the window sill in the conservatory. It's far too cold for them in a greenhouse, even after mine root I keep them in.

After they root, pick out the growing stem in the middle so you get a bushy plant instead of a tree.

Keep trying, if you only get once to two, it's a start. We all had to start somewherE.

Failed tulips in containers

Could have been mice squirrels or voles. Last year they turfed every one out of my window boxes, this year they left those alone and ate every crocus, just left the outer skin laying on the top. Gotta feed the wildlife I suppose. My dad warned me to cover them with close wire mesh, did I listen....

I wouldnt  go that far Pansy, bu we do have sheep or cattle in the field, the odd tiny deer, fox and badgers. Plenty of pheasants.

I have had plants, last year I saved the seeds and will sow in about a week. Never grown then from seeds before but don't see why they would be any different from any other plants. 

Guess the plant

In Or Out Of The EU Garden?

Sounds like my daughter, Frank, she gives me a plant when it's way past it and wants me to resurrect it. 

My son in law just says, don't worry mum, every generation has their problems, always has, always will.

Put a different plant there, one without berries, difficult to stop birds doing what they do.

I am just the same as Holly, lots of seeds and cuttings going on, love it out there on my own, we are miles from anywhere so completely peaceful. Days in the greenhouse are especially nice.
