Propagating Begonia’s

here you can see how large some can grow, this one is two foot tall

Here you can see how large some can grow, this one is two foot tall #flowersoverflowers This Begonia is one we have had for several years and is grown from a tuba which we let go back and keep dry and frost free over winter.

Today’s post is going to cover two topics, the above flower I want to connect to #flowersoverflowers  as I am a day late for the Flower Tuesday post..

I have been busy taking some Begonia cuttings from the lovely ones that have graced my front garden all summer long

Some Begonia’s we have from Tubas’s but some are grown from either leaf cuttings or stem cuttings.. The above 4 were bought from a Garden Nursery, and so will die back over winter. So I thought I would take some cuttings. 

Take a cutting near a leaf joint

Take a cutting near a leaf joint

 First take a new sprouting leaf section and find the leaf joint and cut it on the leaf joint .  Next place them in some water if you have more to cut before dipping into a rooting agent  and pot in compost. 

 

Begonia cuttings placed in their own prorogation ( Freezer bags)

Begonia cuttings placed in their own prorogation ( Freezer bags) Easy, Now all we have to do is keep free from frost and in about a months time the roots will begin to form.. And take care not to over water or they may rot off. 

Happy Gardening Everyone.

Flowers on Tuesday

Today’s flowers are all from my allotments, Autumn heralds in the gold and reds as the leaves turn ready to fall. 

The Nasturtiums are still flowering and doing their thing

Also the Dahlia’s are still giving me loads of joy as I pick them for cut flowers in my home.

Today’s Flowers  is linked with  #flowersoverflowers to bring more colours of nature’s beauty to the world.. 

Wishing you all a Happy week, and hope to be sharing soon what I have been up to in the Garden as we start to put our gardens to bed 

Happy Gardening!

Tuesday is Flower Day

 

I recently enjoyed a post from Pauline over at  Gypsy Life   who had joined in a Blog share  over at Angle and Views  to share a Flower a week  on a  weekly series called Flowers Over Flowers   every Tuesday  with   nalinki.

So I thought to join in..  So my Flower picture for today is of a meadow on the mountain of Schafberg in Austria..  After a wonderful ride on the Mountain railway to the top which has run  since 1893.  I took this picture of the Lake  through the meadow flowers from the top of Mount Schafberg.

Wishing you all a week full of colour and love

Happy Gardening
