Cor blimey!

Greenhouse seems finished for 2014 now. Cuttings appear healthy. Had to scale back on my cuttings this year as we have ,nt really got any free space on either Lawn to plant them next spring. I have still got 3 Pyrocanthus cuttings,4 Fuchsia,and 3 Hebe cuttings for planting in 2015. Also 2 Eunonimus ( please excuse spelling )cuttings just shooting up in 6ins pots. Am glad some bright spark invented hanging baskets as this may be the type of gardening i will enjoy next year. 8 hanging baskets and 3 Window boxes are awaiting bulbs at present. Have one experiment ongoing at the moment, next doors blackberry bush has invaded our fence, so i directed it into my trusty plant pot hoping for a cutting to rise next year. He he he! what a dasteredley plot by gum. I thought it only right as my pal Muffin (the poodle next door) keeps woofing my blooming Rich tea. Take care all, enjoy. Tony

Hello Tony, glad your cuttings were so successful - I'm sure you'll find homes for them all even if it means giving some away!

Nice one Tony, pleased your cuttings are doing ok, I'm sure your neighbour won't mind about the blackberry bush lol, I saw that you did well with your toms...

I think one cutting for one Rich Tea is a fair swop. I keep taking seeds from my plants. I wish I would stop doing it as I too don't have room for them. I get worried I might need a back up plan for the main plant in the spring.

Hi Steragram Hope to keep my Fuchsias for next year (They are one of my fav plants) and my other cuttings hold sentimental memories of my brother in laws garden. If that blackberry shoot rises in my pot next year i will have to find some room for that really. Take care hope you have had a nice gardening year. Tony

Hello there Tony, I thought you'd gone overboard too ! Hahaa! Where are the pictures then ! You are really organised this year ! I haven't even thought about where all my bulbs are going yet as I still have a garden absolutely bursting with colour. So bulbs will be late going in again this year !

Hi Linda 235 excellent idea Linda but i think muffin is into a second rich tea pkt as we speak and i would,nt know where to plant so many cuttings (LoL). Please keep me informed of your back up plan for planting as i have already had to improvise my own several times. Take care and good luck. Tony

Hi Rose Blimey thats great to have a colourful garden still. My Fuchsia plants are quite colourful and both Lawns are pleasent to the eye but my silver jubilee has lost its colour and its getting cold here. Guess its time for me to consider some form of plant protection for winter. Greenhouse seems a good option. Its blooming typical, here i am in a flowerless greenhouse and me ships cook is wallowing in colour by jove (LoL). Where did you hide the plank befor you went awol Rose?. I have a mind to walk on it . Take care Rose Tony
