Cuttings! Still an enthusiastic ignoramus on this one so bear with me. I have several quite large Argyranthemum (thank you, Spritz for the moniker for that one) plants in tubs round the garden, and have taken loads of cuttings which seem to have very successful and are now the same size as the plants I originally bought in 10cm pots. I am obviously going to give them sanctuary in my limited frost-free loft space over winter, but I'm not sure I can fit them all in. Should I be potting them on into larger pots, and would it still be possible to take further cuttings from the woody parent plants in Spring, supposing that they survive?



You should be able to get more cuttings from the parent plants if they produce more fresh growth.

As to potting on, are the roots filling the pots? If not, leave them as they are.

Ah, Spritz, I trust you to come up with the answer every time. Thank you!

You're welcome. I hope you manage to overwinter the parents!
