Divide and repot clivias
Clivias are shade-loving, waterwise plants that are easy to grow. They are long-lived and multiply vegetatively and after many years in a container, these evergreen perennials can become root-bound. Even though clivias like their roots potbound, when left for too long, they can become overcrowded and start to show signs of stress. Clivias can be divided, at most, every three years and the best time to divide them is after they have finished blooming in spring as this will allow the plant an entire year before the next flowering season. Here is an easy guide to dividing and repotting overcrowded clivias growing in containers.
Grow from hardwood cuttings
Hardwood cuttings are taken from deciduous trees and plants (ones that lose their leaves in winter) when they are dormant between April and October. Hardwood cuttings are taken from well-ripened wood, and growth is made directly from buds that are dormant when the cutting is taken - the buds are usually visible. Unripened cuttings of this type will not propagate successfully and the best cuttings are made from the middle wood of the long shoot. Cuttings can take anything from 5 - 12 months or longer to take root and shoot be planted out in late autumn or winter.

Grow succulents from leaf cuttings
Propagating succulents from leaf cuttings is a simple and easy way to increase your favourite plants. This step-by-step tutorial will show you how. Note: some species propagate faster than others and a few succulents won’t propagate from leaves at all. For example, species in the genus Aeonium are extremely difficult to propagate from leaves, instead, these are better propagated from stem cuttings.
