SOFT CUTTINGS OF LAVENDER (ラベンダーの挿し穂)


Sunny and dry weather is continuing. 
Weather forecast says there will be rainfall in a few days 
and cloudy days with some shower follow. 
It's time for taking soft cuttings of dentata lavender in the herb bed. 

In the morning I took cuttings of the lavender.


I sat in the gazebo and making soft cuttings and planted in plastic cells. 
I covered the gazebo with a movable awing 
to avoid burning sunshine. 

ガゼボに腰掛けて挿し穂を作ってプラスチックのセルに挿しました.
焼けるような日差しを避けるために、移動式のオーニングでガゼボをおおいました.


At the east corner of the gazebo, a cute angel was sleeping so comfortably.

I enjoyed the TV programme 'Gardeners' World' on my iPad mini 
(Episode 13, Jun 16, 2017). 
The winner of the golden jubilee plant award 
(the most influential plant of the last 50 years) was the rose,
 which was nominated by Adam. 
I think it is reasonable. 


アイパッドで16日放送のテレビ番組「ガーデナーズワールド」を楽しみました. 
番組の50周年の記念にこの50年間でもっとも影響を与えた植物が選ばれ
その発表がありました.
それは、アダムが候補に挙げたバラでした.
納得です. 


I made 18 soft cuttings of lavender, 
and plant them in multi-purpose compost or akadama soil
 (traditional Japanese elementary soil for gardening) . 
It's because I want to know which is suitable for lavender cuttings.

万能培養土(種まき用)と赤玉土に挿してみました. 
どっちがラベンダーの挿し穂に向いているか知りたいと思ったからです.

    I saw the Gardeners' World programme too and wasn't surprised that the rose won the golden jubilee plant award. My roses are looking pretty at the moment, and I know yours are looking lovely too.
    Best wishes
