Crambe Cordifilia

Posted: 15/01/2013 at 18:34

Hi Looking for a bit of advise, have just ordered another Crambe Cordifilia this year as last year tried unsuccesfully for my first attempt at growing one. It lasted approx 1 week and wilted and passed away. This was just as the rains began so no shortage of water. We have a heavy ish clay based soil, I would be greatful of any ideas to keep this young beauty. Or are they notoriously difficult to grow? It will be positioned in a SW border.

Cuttings from Aeonium

Posted: 07/08/2012 at 21:21

My Aeonium has proven popular neighbours and friends who have felt free to take cuttings from it, leaving large gapping holes in the foliage. Can anyone advise how you cultivate cuttings from it, so I can offer friends who are desperate for their own Aeonium and how if possible I can train my large one to fill in the gaps that are left?
