Here is the Rosemary cutting with its lower third stripped of foliage and immersed in water.

~ Rosemary Cutting 2~ november Propagating Rosemary 2

Three of the ones I put in the water died. This was obvious as the foliage dried out.However the others survived and looked perky, with healthy looking colourful foliage.Tiny roots had formed.The cuttings were ready to be planted into compost in a pot.

~ Rosemary Cutting 3~ november Propagating Rosemary 3

I Planted up the rooting stem in a small pot for the winter, and put it into the greenhouse.


Sweetcorn

~ Sweetcorn~ november Unfertilised Sweetcorn

Here you can see what happens when sweetcorn is not fully fertised. Those seeds which are grow bigger to fill the space of those that are not. Gaps occur in the worst hit areas.
