  • Wow Pam, do you have a production line? You put me to shame, started out with good intentions to do cuttings today and got sidetracked. I think I need to write lines -I must focus!

  • Well Pam your hardwork does pay off cos your garden looks absolutely beautiful.  It is worth it don't you think when you start to see your cuttings grow into colourful flowers next summer.  Happy gardening.  image

  • Hi Ive not ever heard of coleus, the plants in the bottom picture, they look unusual and really eye catching, i would like to try doing lots of cuttings myself, I'm a beginner though so it won't be half as good as all yours!! Anyway well done, all yours look great image
  • How organised are you, I did only a few this afternoon, I am not sure if I have done them  correct I mixed perlite in with compost, what is your secret.
