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

6 Mar 2019 • Too wet for a dressing-gown wander, or even a house-coat wander, so here is one of my favourite #houseplants instead. Even when it isn’t in flower it looks wonderful 💚🧡#cliviaminiata

Lovely. A friend gave me a piece from on of hers. It’s putting up new leaves so I’m hoping it’s going to flower soon🙏🤞

🤔 I think probably the main thing is they need a winter rest: a cool room and not much water and I don’t feed it until the flower spike appears #clivia-advice @juliesgarden

A lovely gift Joan. Mine was a gift too. It doesn’t grow that quickly but I have managed to give a piece as a gift a couple of times over the years @joanboston

It's an old plant (I got it in 1998 and yes it's still alive its been on the cusp of death many times!! 😱) and seems to only flower every 2-3 years

🤔 I was given mine in the late 90’s too. I think I remember reading somewhere that they like a winter rest - cool room, no food, little water - which is easy as we have a room that faces north and rarely warms up! @carolgs

I was thrilled to see clivia featuring on #gardenersworld the other night. They are a fabulous houseplant in the U.K. I don't know what I have done to deserve it, but mine is having a second flush of flowers 😊😊😊

I don't remember mine ever doing it before but I split it and gave half to a friend after it flowered in March, so I reckon it must be good karma Terry! @moore.794

They're brilliant aren't they Carol? I've only 😉 had mine for about 15 years, when it was given to me by someone who was splitting theirs. I love it when it's not in flower too 💚 @carolgs

I was so pleased to see all the buds as it did have a small flower a few weeks ago and I thought that was going to be it for this year but it was just a false start 😊😊😊 Hmm, doesn't it just?! ☀️☀️☀️ @columbiariver
