Re: cuttings

I wouldn't like to be trying to strike cuttings at this time of the year.
Its OK down  here in Australia in summer but mid winter Brrr I wouldn't
think so.  Why are you trying to strike them in water?  You obtain pretty
high success rates in striking mixes or even just open composts. Water is
not a very good way of doing it.
Geraniaceae is all around the world
