Go to Kew Gardens and search out my mate Guy Moore, a horticulturist there. He's Adonis-handsome and single (curly blonde hair and blue eyes)!

Talkback: Rose pot display

poco triste no? bit gloomy the purple heuchera and violas under our dull skies now? I'd underplant a white rose with a variegated vinca and white winter pansies. Glow in the twilight. Purple just disappears. Or it would look good with good with RED roses. But in the halflight white roses are magical with other white flowers.

Talkback: How to take lavender cuttings

hola! am months late, but, er, would like to add a few more things? primero, two-thirds of the cutting goes into the compost, with only a third above the soil.

Lastly, take loads. Happy propagating!
