Cuttings's Garden

My garden is more like a Cottage Garden,..it is a small garden covering about 60 Ft x 30 Ft,..with a main pathway on the right side then three openings leading to the main area.

I was living on a Victorian Estate some 7 years ago and had a large garden area to myself with hens and ducks,..but always in mind that what i planted was temporary as i intended moving to my own house and starting a permanent garden,..so the tendancy was not to buy anything for the temporary garden,..but use cuttings and seeds gathered.

Old habits die hard,..i still have not purchased any plants for my present garden,..its still all cuttings,..plants grown from seeds,..and a few volunteer plants that popped up from heaven knows where,..like "Verbascum nigrum",..and "Papaver somniferum",..and some i still have to identify.

Rose Bushes of course multiply each year as i am addicted to taking cuttings,..but am also growing rose Bushes from seed,..of the four i grew this year i gave away as they were pink roses,..i have enough pink at present.

 There are about 16 rose bushes in the garden,..sadly i only have the name of one rose bush and that is a Hybrid Tea Rose "Ice Cream",..all the others were cuttings i rescued when pruning took place in a Victorian Estate,..most of the cuttings took root andi kept some also gave lots away.
