We have roots!

We had another lovely day of fine weather.  Warm and bright sunshine for a full afternoon of working in the garden.

Back in late July I did a post on rooting  cuttings.  (click on photo to go to post)


And here is the results


A new lilac plant with healthy roots.  I potted this one and 3 others like it into individual pots along with a couple roses that I had in the same propagating container.

All potted up and ready to grow for me.  The large leafed plants to the left of the lilacs and roses are my English Delphiniums I started from seed back in this post:


I am slowly getting them all into the ground.  I have shades of blue and a mix that I am not sure what color they will turn out to be. 

My Heavenly Blue Morning Glory is still blooming away as it climbs the chicken house.


My Heirloom English Rose is also continuing on.  So far Mr. Garden Eatin’ Deer has not nibbled this baby down!


All in all I would say a very satisfying day, one to be thankful for.  Working in my garden always brings me peace.  Probably why I love it so.
Goodnight and sweet dreams!

  1. That is so great! I had no idea you could do that with them. Your flowers still look so beautiful.
    Enjoy your week and I love your new header. :)

  2. What a great job you did rooting the lilacs and roses. I'm going to start some plants from seed come late winter. It's getting so expensive to buy plants these days. I grew some lovely Foxgloves from seed many years ago but sadly I moved and didn't take any plants with me. I should have. Your green thumb is inspiring!

  3. I enjoyed reading about your process for rooting the lilacs. Loved seeing your success!
    I have dug up suckers from my grandmother's lilac bush and established a a bush in my yard. I made sure that I took a fair sized piece of root. It was slow growth--the first year it hardly grew but now it is a nice size bush.

  4. All of your flowers are beautiful and the rooted lilacs are doing so well! Your pictures are gorgeous too!

  5. That Morning Glory is unbelievably beautiful.

  6. I adore lilacs and it is somethinh I still do not have in my garden. Your blooms are de lovely.

  7. Congratulations on your success in rooting the lilacs! Not being a gardener, I didn't realize you could do that. My mom has a gorgeous lilac bush at her house that I'm tempted to try this on... :)

    Have a good weekend,
