They got onto my Lawns with gusto but those dreaded Dandelions were exterminated pronto. Blooming cheek how dare they!. The mix of sun heat and recent rain seemed to put vigour in to my cuttings. All are doing fine . My first Rose cutting has new growth ,and my greenhouse plants are looking great. As always i feel i should have put more of a variety of plants in my greenhouse but next year i will try more colour. Got hols coming up so its priority time. Completed my cold frame but by winter most of my cuttings will have been planted. Enjoyed making the frame though. Photo,s on this blog of my endevours hope you enjoy seeing them. Take care all Tony.

All your baskets look gorgeous Tony, I planted lots of mine with colours of the Queens coronation robes, they were gorgeous but all the rain flattened the lot on Sunday, I know they will recover but oh boy I was mad, typical english weather.
Your plants are doing well, hope your rose cutting continues to grow, I just stick mine in the ground and take potluck, I have one from last year and pleased to say its doing alright at the moment, I never have any success if I try them in pots whereas they do ok if I neglect them..

Your baskets are lovely Tony. Are the rose cuttings ok? I didn't realise there were 2 more blogs as I'm trying to catch up. Have left a message on "Sugar" blog.
