Taking cuttings

Posted: 02/06/2013 at 20:46

hello, i've recently taken some cuttings of xmas cactus as my plant is very overgrown and they're in the greenhouse at the moment. as i wasn't sure whether to take long or short cuttings, i've done both. i dipped the ends in rooting powder as i didn't know if they'd take without it. 

my question is will all the cuttings take and how long will it be before i know ???

i've never taken cuttings from this plant before so don't know what to expect.

thanks   

Mystery Plants from inherited garden

How fab, starting from scratch. i'm envious of your shed it looks great !!!

i have an old ornament that i dug up from underneath a border that was filled with all kinds of debris from the house when it was initially renovated about 20 years ago. We painted him and his little dog (he looks like he's hiking with his companion) and now they both live under my dwarf apple tree, they looks as if they belong there !!!

good luck with all your projects, there's a mine of information on this site.

Query

hello, i have two Haworthia plants which are in flower at the moment but are also pot-bound. they have also sprouted ( if that's the correct term) babies all around the mother plant.

according to the information in my plant book, it states that propagation is by seeds.

my question is this --when should i try and detach the little plants and will they survive ?

thanks   

What did you do in your garden today?

Posted: 26/05/2013 at 21:36

As the weather's been fab the last 2 x days (for a change), have washed all my pots including ones to give away on freecycle. repotted house plants, taken cuttings of some of those as well. potted on some new perennial plug plants and bought a few more while they are on offer on well known superstore.

have managed to do lots of small jobs and am very pleased with my effort

hiya, thanks for all your replies.

it was really nice today being outside all day for a change, had a good clearout of rubish and washed all the pots ready.

will pot up the Iberis as they are quite small but no chance of putting outside yet as still really cold at night.

Happy gardener2, i'm in SA6

OMG really ???

at the moment in South Wales we have gale force winds and torrential rain that's been lashing down all day !!!  It's also really cold, more like March than May.

Plants are as follows -- Salvia, dwarf Phlox and plugs are Iberis.

 

Maybe i can cover them with fleece in greenhouse for extra protection ???

hello, having ordered a selection of perennials to encourage more Bees into the garden and having now received them, i now have a problem because due to the weather/cold nights i can't put them in my unheated greenhouse in case they die.

six of the large ones are in my kitchen and i'm waiting for the large plug plants to be delivered.

can anyone suggest where they should be put when i receive them ???

 

thanks
