The New Season is Underway

Wednesday, 14 January 2015

I've taken the first batch of cuttings. I find these will take about 4 weeks to be well rooted for sending out.  Likewise so will next weeks batch. After these the cuttings will only need 3 weeks when the day lenth increases and the temperature increases.
