I've found it difficult (& cuttings of them impossible!) I'd let them get a tinge of brown first. What I did was to lay the whole seed head on the compost & covered it with about 5 mm of grit & next spring, one seedling emerged! It was from my mum's too! 😊
@ReginaSanders they have such beautiful flowers don’t they 😍 I must admit I have little clue about pruning them. I did it wrong with most of mine so haven’t had many flowers so far so this year I’ve left them all alone to see what happens. It’s all very confusing isn’t it 😂
@keezooluk I have a purple one I've had 3 years and it's literally been ripped out of it's pot 7 times by my dog and my cousins dog. Poor thing is still kicking. I've never trimmed it. Still trying to figure out what it is. The other one I got for my birthday in July. It was pretty good size but I had to repot it and I don't think that pots big enough. 👎it's a Miss Bateman. I'll sure keep you posted.
@ReginaSanders the Miss Bateman one is beautiful 😍 I look forward to seeing photos when you post them 😁 maybe with the purple one it might be worth pruning some of the plant and leaving some old growth. At least then you can see what works best and if you do make a mistake you won’t affect the whole plant 🤔
