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?

Many thanks Pam, will give it a try.

Chris yes have really kept the lawn damp either by natural rain or hose but they have some ant power for sure...

Hollie its the red ants that are the problem with the kids, especially as they are still crawling

Hi Pam does the icing sugar and bicarbonate have to be mixed into a paste first or do you mix them both dry?

Can anyone offer a solution please....

We are completely over-run with ant nests both in the lawn and around the espeliars. Can anyone offer any help we have tried the Nemasys and standard off the counter deterrents to no avail, they just seem to move location.... We have both red and black ants nesting just feet apart is this normal? When treating with Nemasys we located 60 nests in the lawn alone and with the warmer weather hopefully on the horizon it would be great to allow the grand kids on the lawn....
