    2. Oh yes you can Sue. It was a fairly pathetic thing when it came to you. I seem to remember that you did a post when it tried to jump out of its pot to escape from your clutches! It new what work it had to do!

    3. It's currently in a south facing window, Roger which I guess will be too hot for it in summer.
      Should it spend summer in the greenhouse?

  3. A great result. Is Clivia related to Agapanthus, I wonder? The plant structure looks similar.

  4. Clivias are in the same family as amaryllis ot hippeastrums Amaryllaceae and agapanthus are in the lily family Liliaceae, Mark but I agree they look very similar, Maybe there are connections higher up the family tree.

  5. Beautiful, they are so exotic looking, and your stems are nice and compact too, sometimes that kind of thing sends up three foot flower spikes and it all gets a bit unwieldy.
