I decided this afternoon I would take advantage of the fine weather, and cut back some of the plants that are becoming straggly.
Geranium Macrorrhizum are one of my favourite. I love the pretty pink flowers, and the aromatic foliage, which turn a beautiful red in autumn. Rabbits detest this plant, for me, that is a bonus. A lover of clay soil, sun or shade I can ask no more of a plant. I decided a few months ago that I would take cuttings, and use this plant to give continuity to the garden. I shall use the plants to edge borders, along with the meadow cranesbill, which is a pale purple.
I really enjoy this part of gardening, and I must say, even though I am by no means a professional, this is something that I am good at :) I got carried away and ended up with three trays of cuttings.
Whilst the weather is mild I shall leave them in the greenhouse but if it gets very cold shall bring them into the house. The conservatory is the perfect place to bring these plants on quickly. Mr P will not be amused, he hates trays of plants in the house but he is such a sweet man, I know he will forgive me :)
