Geum cuttings?

We have a beautiful Geum quellyon plant. It has flowered weakly the last 2 years. Should we split the rootball? Take cuttings? Buy a new plant?

    If it's really big you can just tease bits off from the base, they come off with root attached. You can then bring them on in pots, outside, or put somewhere else in the garden.

    Gardening on the wild, windy west side of Dartmoor. 

  • Thankyou Lyn, that's really helpful. We'll do that

  • We bought it from a nursery on the Pembrokeshire coast and it's given us a lot of pleasure over the years. It's been quite poor for the last 2 years and it will be great if we can revive it.
