Yesterday, after spending hours pruning, I decided this would be a good time to take some cuttings, utilising the trimmings.
From the central garden bed at the front, I have pieces from the English box plants, including a variegated light green one, creeping juniper and golden diosma. There are always spaces to fill, particularly in the back yard. More nice plants generally mean less places that weeds can rear their ugly little heads.
I have ignored the rules about sterilising pots. My theory is that if the plant can grow with a few germs, it will have better immunity. Propagating mix and a rooting powder are my friends. Having had some success in the past, I look forward to seeing the results.
