Planting

From Early Spring TO Late Spring

Plant in Spring, either indoors in a pot, or outdoors in a sunny, sheltered site with free-draining soil. If planting under glass, use a loam-based potting compost or soil, water freely and give a liquid feed during the growing season. In Winter just keep the soil or compost moist, not wet.

 

Propagating by cuttings

From Late Summer TO Early Autumn

Take semi- ripe cuttings from this season's growth in Autumn. Cut neatly, just below a leaf node, a 5" approx. piece of a healthy shoot that has soft growth at the tip. pinch out the growing tip, and cut off the bottom leaves. Dip the bottom of the cutting in hormone rooting powder, and carefully place in a pot of cutting compost with the leaves just above the level of the compost. Water, label, cover with a polythene bag, and place in a warm, bright place, out of direct sunlight. Take the polythene bag off periodically for a while for ventilation (at least twice a week)
