Winter Propagating

Winter Propagating

I love the whole process and often end up with new plants wondering " what am I going to do with these ? "  Lately and following last years trial success Laurel is a favourite of mine for propagating from . It seems to take easily from hardwood cuttings simply cut and placed in a trench . Roses ( thanks Dick ) have been another success and Ive just moved 6 new bushes from cuttings two years ago into their final flowering beds.Yesterday I took some blackcurrant cuttings from my solitary bush so should have s few more next year . When you stop and look around your garden you realise the possibilities for propagation are many . 

My daughter Lorraine graduated from DCU recently ( yippee ) and is now teaching locally. Ill miss my visits to the Botanic Gardens though .....

As many colours fade these yellow mums start to appear. What started as one bush has now been divided into seven different displays about the gardens . They really brighten up the days .
