If you’re moving house, you’ll undoubtedly want to take some of your favourite plants with you. The easiest way to do this is to take cuttings and collect seeds, and this video clip from Gardeners’ World shows you how. Carol Klein demonstrates how to take late-summer cuttings from perennials such as penstemons, asters, phlox, lavender and Ageratina altissima ‘Chocolate’, and how to collect ripe seeds from annuals such as calendula and Cerinthe major ‘Purpurascens’.
