Morning everyone, what a surprise, it’s raining but at least it means I don’t have to water the new turf today. This salvia still has a few blooms but it’s on its way out now, it’s been a an absolute star this year. Enjoy your day whatever you’re doing #salvia #salvia-amistad #purple 23/11/19 💜💜

Morning Pauline, it's stopped here temporarily ☔. This one is in quite a sheltered spot and survived the hard frost we had the other day so I've left it for now. Enjoy yours too @flof1952 💜🙋

Lovely Amistad Jane. Mine's still in flower but wilting slightly. Really good going. When I'm on the road there's a lovely garden and they've got 2 lovely looking Magenta Salvia. They were flowering beautifully until last week. I must get more Salvias next year 💜💜

Morning Jane, that looks very healthy 💚 Do you cut you prune your Salvias? If so when and how much? Thanks ☺

I cut it down to about 60cm after flowering and gave it a thick mulch and I have only recently taken the rest of the old growth off Ange @anges 👍👍

Thanks Jane, might give ours a good hair cut and see what happens - some of them are looking a bit out of hand! 😁

There’s a little flower bud forming on this cutting. I hated pinching it off 😢💜 #salviaamistad #cutting #purple #crying 14/3/19

Try scraping a bit of the stem near the bottom, if it’s green underneath then it’s still alive. I did mine the other day and it’s fine, but taking cuttings is a good insurance policy and it means more plants. Win win!! @lovemygarden65 😍👌

So chuffed Rich, my cuttings didn’t do very well last year, so a lot of reading and doing things by the book seems to have worked @richard.spicer.7906 👌👌
