Potted things

Potted things

A glimps of various potted odds and ends from Portulacca (cuttings) to Oaks (from acorns) via Fever Few and Cranberry.The trough at the bottom of the picture is the very poor result of dozens of Aubrietia & Dianthus seeds shown in the next pics.

Do you think so Suey, they are 6 months sown and all thats left from well over a hundred seeds, I hoped to have around 40 plants, is that over optimistic?

The rest are mostly doing well (although a few including the Cranberry I have not had long)
My Mother lives in Cornwall and is selling her house so I've been grabbing a few cuttings while I can.

Oh my........2 from 2000 !! yikes, you poor thing. You've made me feel quite successful with my modest 8 from around 100+. There are obviously many ups and downs I've yet to experience in the garden.

Yes Suey, she has been deviding, cutting and air-layering in advance so we can try again asap if any fail.
