Time for a update. Been here for 5 years now so the garden is no longer brand new. It’s still windy, it’s still stony and I still have so many plans.

Repotted this one this summer Julie, hoping it will throw out more shoots. My baby Serling has grown by erm millimetres 😂 @juliesgarden

Today I brought my clivia in for the winter. More seeds have developed this year than last - and- there’s a bud! (Can’t wait, love the flowers). Here’s last years seed - the slowest growing seed ever. Planted it around Christmas time when it looked nice and ripe. It didn’t germinate until June, I nearly threw it away. It’s about half an inch high now and still has only one leaf. It had better survive! #clivia #natallily

@charlotte I’ve tagged you in a couple of pics of mine. Not a bulb, it has fleshy roots. Beautiful plant, love the foliage and the flower is lovely.

I only put mine outside for the summer Jacqui, in the shade by my front door, it seems to love it there. @awomanonabike

That’s a shame Carol, but I guess that’s a good innings! If all those seeds ripen are you interested it giving a long slow germination a try? @carolgs

So this happened! Back last autumn after flowering my clivia had one seed and I decided to plant it. In the I took it to Spain for a while and I brought it back. I’ve been close to dumping it numerous times but when I looked at it today .... 10 months germinating! #germination #clivia #natallily #longwait #houseplantsjoho

What a shame Julie, they are so beautiful. Mine gets moved around through the year. In the hall in the winter, in the porch where it’s cooler when it’s flowering and now it’s outside in a sheltered spot. Seems to work, flowers beautifully twice a year. @juliesgarden

Wow! Fantastic Val. Well done 👌 I'm on my 2nd attempt from seeds earlier this year, but no sign of germination yet, but it seems that patience will be needed!

It seems so Jeff, I don’t know what stopped me getting rid of it but I’m so glad I didn’t! @jeatacake

Mine doesn’t really get any direct sun Julie, not sure if it makes any difference, just going by the leaf colour etc but thought I’d let you know @juliesgarden

Mine has these seed pods too. Last year I tried to grow them, without success though. Will try this next lot though & try them in a heated propogator in spring 👍

I was surprised to get home on Friday to find it flowering, there wasn’t a sign of a bud when I went away the previous week!
