Since moving into our new house with lovely big garden last summer I've started seriously propagating for the first time ( previous garden was v small so I didn't really bother as didn't want lots of repeatend plants). This year I've "created" from cuttings/division at least 5 penstemons, 3 fucshias, 8 sedums, 6 heucheras, 5 hebes, 5 rosemaries, 15 ajugas (need lots of ground cover!), and a couple of pelargoniums. I reckon they'd have cost me about £250 to buy as plants, so have told hubby I'm now deciding what to buy with the £250 I've created . It's Gardeners' Logic, surely?
Hubby doesn't agree, however he also doesn't think much of my "shopping logic" which says that if something is reduced from, say £40 to £10, I've spent £10 but saved £30, so I have "created" £10 which can be happily spent on something else
