Daft question, is it possible to propgate in water so you can see the roots grow?

See original post

Willow is very good for this, you can watch the roots from little white dots on the stem all the way to real roots. Quick too, great for educational stuff.

I've seen pics of this one looking great but in reality I've seen this one looking a straggly mess. Fuchsias aren't climbing plants and this one is long and lanky which is not the same as climbing whatever the promotions say

I have a buddleja bought as Black Knight, I wouldn't describe the colour as burgundy but it's not Black Knight. I wonder if some of these plants are seed raised and not the true cultivar. 

I like mine, nicer than Black Knight

I don't know the origin of the original seed, nor any way of finding out. I'll just enjoy it for what it is.

How would I tell for sure Richard? It's rather a depressed looking plant at the moment with somewhat yellow leaves but it's grown more this year that it ever has done before since I planted it in a better place.

Please help me with removing these crazy massive ivy of my tree!

The white flowers aren't there for long, but they're very noticeable when they are there. Sucating, you don't need a tree surgeon to cut this stuff at the base, if it's too big a job for you, most gardeners would tackle it

Might be true species Richard, It came as such from the BCS many years ago, handed out at the end of an HPS talk and already a couple of years old. Germination was a surprise to me.
