Hi does anyone know how to take cuttings from astrantia and geum?

    Astrantias will self seed and grow lots of extra plants. I always grow from seed,s never took cuttings so not sure about that.

    Geums, you can usually just scrape away the soil and tease a piece of root off. 

    Gardening on the wild, windy west side of Dartmoor.

    By far the easiest way to produce new plants from both of those mentioned is by division.

    Seed will work well for Astrantia, but plants do not come true from seed.

    How can you lie there and think of England

    With the astrantias, division is the way if you want the same plant as the parent. If not - as Lyn says - they'll seed around if they're happy
