I have just nipped to the green house to see how my geranium cuttings are doing. Once again more than half have got the fluffy white / brown mould and are rotting.
Where am I going wrong please? I've tried cuttings at the end of summer, and I have no success.
These ones were taken two weeks ago (advice of a gardening pal) and no success.
I cut below a leaf node and put around the edge of a pot of compost. I've tried that rooting powder too - makes no difference. I water sparingly when I put them in.
Anyone got a method that gets some success please? Is it the initial watering? Is it that they are in compost? Should they be in grit? Is it the cold greenhouse? Should they be on a warm windowledge?
Would really like to master cuttings - but I'm rubbish at them!
