When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, peonies, philadelphus...

Aeonium Arboreum Zwartkop

18 February 2018 • Another casualty of the unheated heated greenhouse but I can’t wait to see what this one does. Look at all that new growth on the stem 😊😊😊

I brought mine into the house for winter and I thought I’d lost it, put it back in the greenhouse and it’s much happier Jacqueline. Strange!! 🤔🤔

Another cutting of this tough #aeonium So easy to #propagate Just cut off a piece, leave to harden for about 10 days (or longer if, like me, you had forgotten about them!) then pot up in 50:50 mix of compost and grit. ✅

So just chop off a bit, leave it unplanted, then pot up? @awomanonabike

Yup, that's all Claudia! This time I left it so long it had a little root coming out of it already. @clipperty

Just looking at the photos I have of this aeonium you can really see how it loses its dark colour in the winter. @clipperty How are you getting on with your baby one Gail? @gailybob

Well it's potted up @awomanonabike but I haven't seen it in weeks as it's down hubby's allotment but he's off there today so will get him to check it x
