I lose the whole flower bud. I blame mutjacs though I've never proved it
You can blame me for anything Philippa
I know it works because I saw the results. Unfortunately, as with many other cuttings, they weren't my results. Mine died
Might be as quick in the long run though Edd
I'd do both
Also if you have one of the cultivars you'll need to do the bulb offsets or the leaf cuttings to get the same plant
slices of leaf place vertically in compost is quite successful
It can be quite dangerous on the map. Members have been dumped in the sea.
My Symphytum officinalis is 5 or 6 foot tall before it falls over.
Then I have a blue one that's 2 foot or so and a ground covering one at about 1 foot.
There are a great many species/varietes/cultivars
Hi Lyn. They're woodland plants, deciduous shade and not boggy. They grew like weeds in my previous garden but it's uphill al the way here. The soil is much stiffer here but not really clay.
Lovely things. It took 3 tries to get them established but worth the effort.
Yes WW. Eranthus hyemalis, aka aconites.
not Aconitum species aka monkshood.
Nice pic. I'm ready for it all to start now,
