One new thing that I did do this past fall was take cuttings from my favorite plants, something I had never attempted. Not really knowing what I was doing but willing to experiment. I took 3 inch cuttings from all the different coleus plants I had. Wow, they all took off as you can see. The cuttings from the double impatience also took off quickly and after 3 months are not looking the best, not sure if they will last until the end of may.

|Double Impatience not doing so good|
|This is a cutting that was 3 inches (from oct 2011)|
|Overwintered potted geranium|
I also attempted a few Rex begonia cuttings and 1 actually took, it hasn't grown, but it hasn't died either. It has been a great winter to be able to still garden in the house!
