Agastache Black Adder

Advice for my rose Falsataff please...

Those upright stems need to be pulled down BEFORE they harden.  I agree with Obelixx do this a but at a time.

however, it is getting a little late...wood will be hardening a start should be made asap

Morning Nadia

derbyshire limestone sounds ideal for black adder.  

Agastaches do not move are likely to lose it if you do.   Not too late to take cuttings now...those near the base are best.  Half perlite, half mpc, soak cuttings in water for half an hour then dip ends into hormone rooting powder.  Important to knock off excess.  Water compost before inserting cuttings.  Polythene bag in the warm....inside now.

Pete.....yes, poor soil and prolonged flowering go hand in hand for agastaches

cuttings taken in mid summer have already formed plants that will flower next year

Anyone growing Watsonias?

my local nursery has a couple of stunners and I am soooooooo tempted. glorious peachy orange and sumptuous white.  

can provide the hot poor conditions in summer and the mild winters but yet to see them growing anywhere. 

Opinions would be appreciated
