Taking Chocolate Cosmos Cuttings

Posted: Today at 09:33

I bought a Chocolate Cosmos plant yesterday which has now become one of my favourite plants! I was intending to take some cuttings from it but after looking at the RHS website it says to take them in the Spring by taking Basal Cuttings.

I was hoping to take some before Winter just incase it doesn't over - winter well and therefore I have a spare, but after reading that can it not be done?

If any of you have done it please can you let me know, thank you

Can anyone tell me why my 'Tickled Pink' Apple Tree leaves look like this?

So far there's only been about 4 or 5 and I have taken them off.
I also have a 'Cox's Orange Pippin' that has had orange / brown splotches on it's leaves, which I also removed, at the other side of the garden.
Both Tree's are in large pots and I only bought them at the start of the year as young trees.

Im okay with the little ones but the larger bodied ones with gangly legs I have to admit have me running for the hills ...

Oh good, when we moved in two years ago the border was just filled in with gravel so atleast after adding soil and continuously mulching is doing some good! lol
Shall I just leave it there?
