  1. I can’t thank you enough for these wonderful pod casts. I am getting quite spoiled and looking forward to them each evening, however I know that you can’t possibly keep this pace up during busy times. Lucky for us that fall and winter are here and you might have more time to make these pod casts. I enjoy so much the advice and seasonal information. The fact that your care focuses first on the needs of nature and next on our own needs is splendid. And as I’ve mentioned before I am so enjoying learning about the various ancient traditions. Thank you again so very much.

  2. Thanks Colette. That was great. Just one more question re the cuttings. If they are more fragile and less woody they go into a pot rather than straight into ground. Very helpful podcast. It’s great being able to listen to you. x x x

    • This is true, but invariably I cut off on the woodier part of the stem if I can and avoid the pot bit of the procedure. In the early days I did as you have suggested as most of the shrubs were grown from illicit cuttings taken at various Garden centres…Ssshh…don’t tell anyone!
