Thank you, Janey. Yes, they are very sunny flowers & the bees & pollinating insects love them. Unfortunate I have only one plant left where's a year or two ago I had a dozen or more! I couldn't get them to root this year! I will have another ago in a couple of months time.

If you haven't got room for the large daisies these are ideal to have. The foliage is nice to.

The fern-like foliage is always good to see. Unfortunately the leaves often become infested with a tunnelling grub which eventually kill them. Strangely enough I haven't had a single leaf-miner on them this year! 👍 But I really must get some cuttings once this hot spell, which is producing record heat in September this year, comes to an end.

Good luck with the cuttings Balcony, and yes it's going to be hot for a while again. I watered the garden last night and gave it a real good soak.

In a couple more weeks it will be time to take cuttings of plants we like but that won't endure the winter outside.

I'm itching to start taking cuttings - almost every day I look at my plants with the thought of taking cuttings uppermost in my mind! It's more NOT taking some right away but I need to be a bit more patient, most cutting will root quite quickly but that leads to them getting too big before winter comes around. So I'll probably wait till the end of the month before taking any.
