Yvietevie,, that's ok...wild swan instead of toilet rolls.  Fantastic plants you will not regret buying. I use newspaper now. Saving money but it's the ink stains on my bottom   Not good for my ego 

Busy day.  A few meetings today including another about my mum.  She was on good form today when I saw her.   A nursing home has been agreed and mum will prob move in tomorrow.  

Been lovely and very warm again.  

How do I get to the next stage from cuttings to fully grown plant

Hiya fender

If  3 or 4 weeks back, I would have  have said pinch out growing tips.  However, I would now leave them as they are.

In spring, when new shoots are seen, I would pot on and pinch back.  I would pinch back a few times after that too to secure a bushy dense plant.

......the good guys

Chicky, for the very best start, your plants  need to spend some time in Cornwall.  I will be happy to assist

Such a lot of worries ......best wishes for,everyone involved.  I guess we take each day as it comes and maybe not worry too much about the next day.  Not easy though is it?

Hopefully this thread will give continue to give support, advice and general encouragement.  Almost feel I know so many here now so I am concerned

Morning all  Sunny bright but just a touch of chill in the air 

Hope everyone has good day 

What plant is this please?

Looks like artemisia dracunculus to me.  It also sounds like it from your description of root system Poppy Girl .  I would get rid of it

That's a good idea Matty 

To cut back or not to cut back...

Agree with ??ou Joe.  Frost on hardy perennials is beneficial I think.
