It seems I am just a bit late with almost everything this season, but Autumn is coming on like gangbusters, and the cooler temperatures seem to be earlier than usual too. This week our nighttime temperatures will dip into the forties. I’ve been taking cuttings of plants I want to save. The plants in the photograph above are: fuchsias and two types of dragon-wing begonias. I used honey as a rooting boost. You can read how to do this at my earlier post: How-to Root Plants with Honey.
The cuttings have been in a lightweight potting soil for a few days now, and they all seem to be thriving under the lights in my basement. Today I will take a snip or two of anything left in the gardens that I have yet to save.
