Eileen, shame it's no longer with you.

Now, isn't she pretty? Apart from Fuchsias I have very little luck with cuttings. I'm not sure why.

Thanks Julia, I seem to do better with cuttings these days than sowing seeds! I think it's a lot to do with the time of year they are taken.

You're probably right Shirley.

David, I really like Penstemons, especially as they come in so many different sizes and colours.

I've only ever had one plant & that didn't even last that one summer! 😪

Perhaps they fare better in the ground ...

You may be right, Shirley. I really ought to get a couple of plants next year & hope for better luck a 2nd time around! They really are lovely flowers! 👍😀

David, I just read that Penstemons can be grown in pots or garden boxes/troughs, water them well at first, then ensure they don't dry out completely.

Thanks for that info, Shirley! 👍😀👍😀
