  1. What are the cuttings of? I love seeing the roots and recently bought a daffodil bulb that’s in the top of a small glass vase so I can see all the tangle of roots as well as the bulb, leaves, and flowers. Cheap and beautiful entertainment. πŸ™‚

    • I’m amazed by it too.
      My new gardening mantras are “things want to grow” and “hold your nerve” — the latter when things look like they’ve died and I’m tempted to rip them out of the ground. I’ve had close calls with both mandarin and pear trees which both lost all their leaves and looked like sad little twigs. Both are now thriving.

      • You have had such success, Su, despite your misgivings. I think “hold your nerve” is good advice – I tend to give up too easily (I don’t like to see things withering, plants, people or otherwise).

        • Thank you. I don’t like to see things/people in trouble either, but with my son I realised I had to back off and allow him to fail at things. It’s kind of the same with my plants β€” present and caring, but not trying to control. Sounds good β€” but I am so work in progress πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  2. In a previous life I too planted pineapple sage. Good to start new plants as they can get leggy and not so attractive if not pruned regularly which is hard to do when the flowers are so lovely.
