Gardenmaiden, they will be plugs. Perfect for next year. Nothing for this year.
I gave Amistad to friend a day or two ago...it was 40 cm plus tall with lots of flowers. This was a cutting taken last autumn. Others (planted in the ground) are 4' plus tall
my point....that I feel I should stop making because it doesnt affect me and frustratingly few take heed of....is that one decent plant ( a fiver if you look around in a nursery) will give a beautiful impact making plant NOW. It will also provide as many plants as you need next year. Cuttings will outgrow those plugs.
My garden is full of quality purchased plants and their offspring cuttings or divisions. Every plant I buy or have given to me has cuttings immediately taken. what better value? You yourself choose the varieties you want in your garden and not what suppliers give you.
plugs of perennials, bought at this time of year esp when sales of garden plants are everywhere, are not good value. In my opinion.
I will make no more comment on plugs or bare roots ...........calm now
