take a heel of small twig or branch (take a couple) and place in a pot with a little grit and peat .place cuttings at the side of pot,water and leave alone until it shows signs of growth or if you lift leaf gentle it wont pull out.I would suggest you do this in late spring early summer.

The Year of the Slug

Posted: 27/12/2012 at 15:17

I read in the Times (font of all knowledge paper) that the Spanish giant slug has done the dastardly deed of breeding with our native slug and now even  a bigger threat looms,will it be bigger slug pellets,tanker sized pots of beer to drown in,or will the french come to our rescue and pickle them.Hope they don't find their way to my kitchen.

I have alot of cacti,some are very old and out growing the pots,this year they have got a yellow tinge to them,yet they have been treated the same as always,I wonder if the lack of sun was the problem or too cold,only one flowered this year.
