Carol,,which sort do you have? There are now a lot of tender osteospermums on the market.
However, now is a great time to take cuttings. They root easily. ,half perlite half mpc and try to get non flowering shoots. Doesn't really matter though too much...just remove the flower buds. Water in, polythene bag or propagator and leave in warm shady spot in the garden. They take fast. I usually put a dozen in half tray and cover with propogator lid. Keep over winter ...water only if dry ...in greenhouse. If in a cold area cover with fleece in cold times. Pot on in the spring and plant out when nice size plants. They will grow fast and flower next summer. Easy peasy
