Three cuttings of #gaura doing really well now in case mine doesn't make it over Winter as they seem to be short lived!! 25.09 #mygardenkeely

I wasn’t doing cuttings but I’ve started seeding some things like Esperanza and Orange trumpet vine so maybe by spring they’ll b a good size. I do those inside with a grow light but zinnias and thosei don’t seed til February. I’ve tried and tried and I can’t get the gaura to take from cuttings you must have a magic green thumb 🤗🤗 😊💕

@terrimclaughlin oooh I must have knack first time doing them for me too, I found them suite easy just dipped them in root powder and covered with trifle pot and they all rooted well 🙆🙆 I will bring these into back bedroom window cill as really don't want to loose these it's such a good plant. My coleus and osteospermum cuttings come in too over Winter,my house ends up a greenhouse over Winter but its all cost saving for next year I always do too many as some don't always survive 😄

My seedlings are doing better than my cuttings, I seem to be crap at cuttings, think I'll stick with taking seeds 😂😂

comment
Keely

@pelly do you use rooting powder Jane? I cover mine too with my trifle pots as I do my seed pots then once they are established take the pot off and pot on I let them sweat under pots no need to water again usually, and don't put them in direct sunlight either 😐

comment
pelly

Yes ,I use rooting powder, I think I just need to eat more trifle, but I'm guilty of keeping them in direct sunlight, thanks for the #advice Keely 😍😘

@linfoster they seem to be short lived Lin most I have had is 2 years then they don't come back so if I can keep cuttings going I will be happy as can have continual plants each year 😄

Very pretty Keely! I've got a white Gaura growing in a pot but it's still very small, so don't think it will flower this year unfortunately! Enjoying yours though! 😀

I grew mine from seed this year and was unsure whether they would flower in their first year! Do you know if they need protecting over winter?

comment
Keely

@bigemrg mine have never survived a Winter yet Ian so I would say yes I even mulched them 3" to protect them last year to no avail and they were very good strong plants last year! I am on improved clay soil maybe in better soil they are but I treat them as annuals now due to this as it's happened for last 3 years 😥

Gorgeous. Lovely pic. Just waiting for mine 😬 it’s my last attempt as they never seem to do very well. Trying it in the drier border so fingers crossed!

comment

@rachelbrooks this was £1 from autumn's Harrogate flower show I would buy them again if they have them this year as they never come back in mine year after but worth it for £1 loved my white ones they only lasted one Summer didn't make it through winter must only be half hardy 😄

I had them in the border that has the box hedge so I don’t think mine got enough sunlight girls, and they always flopped 🙄 same with a lot in that border so it’s a bit of trial and error 😊 @susanhumphrey333

In pots they are just leaning one way at the moment and looking lovely. They might eventually fall flat, but looking good for now. Might try that in the pots Keely @rachelbrooks Thankyou 😚
