Morning everyone, have a super Sunday. This is the only flower open on my lobelia Russian Princess, I think it’s too late for any more now, I need to move it to a sunnier spot 💞 #lobelia-russian-princess #pink

@pelly Thank you. I was upset but hopefully she'll grow out of her plant destroying phase. Otherwise it's dog repellent I'll be getting!❤❤

Where do you take cuttings from Jane?

comment
pelly

Preferably a non flowering shoot James, take a cutting, pinch out the tip and just leave a couple of leaves. Hope this helps? @bandicoot 🤔🤔
