Amy thank you, my OH will be in his glory, Oh be the way, you know that Actinidia Kolomikta I put on and you said you had taken a cutting from your one, my daughter ask me to ask you is it just a certain time of the year it goes pink and white or is that the way it grows,

It's a shame they don't last longer isn't it ..

Yorkshire ( Val ) yes it is the way they grow they stay like that ! It's best to take cuttings in the summer but I must admit I try it at anytime if they 'take ' they do if they don't well nothings lost .... try to find a nice new piece that is at least as thick as a pencil .. I'm going to try to take some more soon...
If you would like to give me your address Val. I came across a small Foxglove hiding in the garden I'm not sure if it would travel well at this time of the year especially with our dry conditions but I could take a chance and send it to you and still send you some seed when they are ready .........
