I had cuttings from Hydrangeas in a cold propagaror and hadn't looked at them for some time. This evening, I took away the plastic bag and as Archimrded said :"Eureka", I discovered that they were well rooted. The plastic bag was removed together with some withered leaves, then some water and back into the cold propagator. I was so pleased as they had been neglected. No photo to day but to morrow, I will remove them from the pot and put them in separate pots, then photos.

Well done, Dick. They're growing away despite your absence.

What are you going to do with all your new Hydrangeas Dick? I have a few grown from cuttings, which I will probably give to my daughters.

Peter, I give them to my friends. I also bring the to the Country Market on a Friday hoping that somebody might buy them.
