Good Evening FORKERS

Very sunny and warm here today, just a light breeze, glad that irritating easterly has quietened down. Liz, are you getting a bit of Mistral?

Clivias love to be pot bound and flower better that way. Unless it is rising up out of the pot, I would leave it. If you do repot, ordinary compost such as for pelargoniums will do, don't use too large a pot, an inch of compost around the sides and and a 2/3 inches in the bottom wll do. If you put it outside, start of in the shade for a week or two, otherwise the leaves will get sunburn.

Here is some information that will help:

Hi greenmaid. I presume it has finished flowering now, so if it was mine I would cut it back. You could cut out any branches that criss-cross each other to lighten it up a bit. Unless the branches are very thick, I don't think you need to seal them.

Yes, defiinitely bamboo! Didn't know it was the spreading type and took over the whole of the back of our pond, turned up 5 meters away in the lawn, up drains etc. Took over a year to kill it and are still digging out the roots!

I did, what was wrong with it?

Couldn't give an answer because I've never done it, but know a neighbour did.

Sorry Bev - best not look; it's a bit like watching a slow car crash - fascinating while it's happening but the after effects are not good.

Birdy, re photos. I drag and drop my photos from desktop and get a lot of gobbledegook(?) too. I have found that if I completely mark the  goobledegook and delete it right to the end, I end up with the vertical curser signal in the middle. I then drag and drop the photo onto that again and submit reply and hey presto, it's in. Have to do a new one for each photo, but at least it works.
