When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, peonies, philadelphus...

Erysimum

I’m not sure which variety of #erysimum these are (I think they are The Artist Series) but they are looking the best they have ever looked and I’ve had them for several years 💜🧡💛

30 Apr 2019 • When 6 #erysimum seedlings arrived from Jerseyplantsdirect a year ago I wasn’t expecting them to survive, as they had been so poorly packaged and were really shaken up. I couldn’t tell which was which, so... this is either E. ‘Gogh’s gold’, ‘Monet’s moment’ or ‘Paintbox’ 🤔 Might be easier to tell when the others flower. Think I might be taking some cuttings though 💜

Beautiful colours, are they easy to take cuttings from? @awomanonabike

Yes Melanie, it’s usually very easy. The difficult bit is getting a shoot that doesn’t have a flower bud on the end! If you look in the GT encyclopaedia there is a description of how to do it 👍 @mellybobs

Thanks Keely. I had no idea there were so many different ones out there! Just a shame they have a habit of flowering themselves to death 😢 @Keely
