Plant Propagation: The Basics July/Aug 2016
Beautiful blooms Debra, you sure have it going on this time of year. Beautiful timing for me too as I'm looking to find things that are blooming now.
Love all the Flower pictures Debra .
around here been outside some , Setting up for perennial flowers , Thinking about Fall vegetables ,Never got around to collecting up my tea leaves Herb Tea and all.
This came to find some shade for a while ,interesting umbrella
Butterfly being inventive , How about a Tithonia sun shade for your patio table
Those Mexican sunflowers sure make great butterfly magnets!!!
It would be great to have a Tithonia sun shade, especially in that color.
beautiful again. How do you get the butterflies to pose Ju?
Going to have to go buy reading glasses to wear with contacts. Pic 1 might be plants Debra sent me that haven't yet moved out to flowerbeds, or might be anything else. Lost 2 pair of reading glasses that should be on shelf of my desk since February, and I'll bet I find them as soon as back from drug store. a peeking fancy passion flower, soapwort getting a darker tone, more flowers I can't really see, and the bicycle I found at the curb on saturday when riding with my granddaughter, got the truck and went back for it.
I'd love to see a pic of the blooms in pic #1 when they show up, I'm curious (really curious) as to what it is Gypsi. Thanks for showing us your blooms, the same to Ju!
The kitten brood is growing and looks healthy and happy. I still want one of those -- even though I just found a new one in my yard and it looks like my total of furry feline friends count is now 4. We've got a neuter appointment. on Thursday.
Hoping furry , fuzzy still likes you after the Appt . Mine climbed the wall for hours afterward ,, literally , Graphic ,,, and goodness ..
Lot of my seedling photo's failed to focus , pic's are a pot of pink asters , here we go again ,,
Bronze fennel ,
Flat topped aster
Smooth blue aster
Blue Erigeron ?
Night and Day snapdragon ,
Wild Black Mustard
Southern curled Giant Mustard
All these are growing ,
Forgot the Cabbages ,their in there ,
Ju have you got all those seeds in one pot? I wouldn't look forward to wall climbing, I should have a padded cell at the ready, just in case. Don't worry, I won't leave shoelaces or anything sharp in their either. What if they didn't give him pain meds to take home, could that be why he was climbing the walls?
Nice long shot ju. Oh no tiny pics mislead. Pic number one has a plain green bloom and grows wild around here. I took the pic to I'd and find out what it provides my bees.
Robin I don't remember oh , aha ,, it was Kilo when he reacted to tramadol , He was bouncing and digging his claws in half way up the wall and hanging there and yelling , then he would drop bounce ,yell and twist and then do it all over again ,
The seeds are all in different containers . Small plants most are now Two of the blue asters the Snapdragon and the red Milkweed are all in the ground now ,
Gypsi I don't know what that is , but if bees like it I would keep it also ,,
That's a pretty healthy looking "almost orange" zinnia Ju.
Things could wind up almost any day here. The forecasts all appear safe but we have had 3 really cool mornings in the last week even though forecasts are for 10C. Two mornings at 4 and one at 5C. Have to keep a close eye on things and take a lot of coleus and succulent cuttings before it gets to 0. Last year we squeezed through to end of September but not real optimistic this year.
Checked bike out yesterday, coaster brake works, rest need oiled, will air tires later. I started geranium cuttings and reported some of the parents Sunday night
All that work Keith and it's winding down already...I sure hope you like the looks of your estate in the winter. It's always great to have some winter interest.
I love your propagation efforts Debra, how did you like the 'potato method'? The results sure look satisfactory. I'm sure we'd all love to get a sport of that upside down cake...it looks fabulously yummy!!!
Two more Bamboo from seed in pots Two outside in the ground and August seeds are a no show ,
All these from seeds . most my own , all different pots mostly Robin
One of these is a newer white coneflower
and Debra Love all the propagating you have going also ,!!!
Keith ,, Than you about the zinnia , their a fun flower ,,

Very nice, lots of sprouting going on at Ju's house! Thanks for showing me every pot, I sure didn't mean to make all that work for you though. I just thought you might have thrown all of the seeds in one pot and sort it out later.
Okay, so I perceived wrong...you didn't take it as some sort of a double dog dare huh? You didn't have to prove to me that all those seeds were sown in different pots?
Robin I don't think you perceived me wrong , I just starting laughing when I read that .. I am sprouting and potting things all the time , The idea of someone making me do that , never occurred me , lol
Sometimes there are interesting things going on about some the plants I start from seeds ,does not always concur with info ,,
And Robin , It would be like me saying I am making you plant your flowers ,, If you were in the mood I was . i bet you would laugh also ???
Gypsi I don't have the slightest idea of the unknown plant name , pretty pictures though

saw some at Home Depot a week ago, so I did a search for blue flowers at home depot and it is plumbago. the purple in that pic are african buttonbush, and the darker blue on the right are blue daze. I picked up another 20 misc pots at 70% off at Ace Hardware this evening, going to have fun.
Found my sweetbay, cuttings chilling at sis in laws house til I get moving again and I borrowed her plants for my blooms as summer winds down. Love the sprout medley, chuckl, wish I were around enough to keep a brug alive long enough it could survive tough love, chuckl.
66 instead of 65- so you have less time to draw it...
I bet Debra knows about Passiflora propagation from cuttings Kitt. You can always try and if you fail, Gypsi might find you some seeds from her vine up there.
Ju, I meant the work involved in taking pics, uploading and naming them all for us. I didn't mean sowing and growing...geesh, everybody knows you do that...all the time! You're a sprouting machine.
Takes me nowhere. I start Back Porch Threads, you guys do these!!! Worn out guys, seriously. Sorting thru pictures for a memorial to my brother that passed away yesterday and working on cleanup and designate. Thank heavens I am not the Executor- you need to be young for this
Aww Kitt, I am so sorry for your loss.. I am glad you get to look for pictures, tho, that wiull bring good memories. Link is not working, Robin, try again?
Sorry guys, I don't know what happened, try this;
Oh my Kitt, I'm so sorry you have to suffer this loss, thoughts and prayers go out to you and yours.
