Hello Lorraine, depends on when you sowed the seeds.  

Did you pot on?  Have you fed?  Not too much but a little dilute feed.

Yes granma........many salvias perform like dahlias.  Will flower from seed quite quickly and then form tubers

Busy morning and got back to find a plant had been delivered.  Another kniphofia popsickle, this time Papya.  That's it now though.  Tempted by a couple more but I will resist.  Pineapple popsickle appeals, no 

very very warm....a little humid in fact.  Potted up my new plant...another excellent supplier, I shall add to the " good guys" thread, and perfect plant.  Now in a 5 litre pot with mpc and a little dried,manure mixed in.  The recipient site has a beautiful delphinium for now.  After flowering it will go elsewhere and Papya will replace it.

WHAT IF.........

Similar to Hollie...rooting powder not essential for me

however, make sure cuttings are big enough.....3" or more...remove soft tips and cut any leaves in half.  

If using rooting powder soaking cuttings in water ....I use a beaker with a lid......helps I think before using hormone powder.  Something I have always done ...seems to be effective.
