The Propagator

My plant obsession

The Propagator

I’ve been raising plants from seed for a good few years with some pretty good results.  I’ve also dabbled a bit with cuttings with very patchy results.  I became a little obsessed with the topic of propagation last year and am going nuts with it in 2017.

I garden on a fairly ordinary suburban plot, about 120 square metres of useful space, made up of borders and lawn, plus another 80 square metres of working space including shed, greenhouse and veg beds.

This blog is my assorted ramblings, progress, disasters, setbacks, results, my learnings and some tips along the way. It’s mostly for my benefit, to keep track of what I’ve done, and hopefully is also of some interest to other planty obsessives.

Read a bit more about me here.

I’m very happy to receive comments on any post, I will respond to all in due course. If you would like to contact me on this or a related topic, or if you have some feedback on my blog whether good bad or ugly, please get in touch here.
