  1. Hi Glenda guess what didn’t have time to get there before I went to Broome and drove out to Forrestdale straight after, all the clivia’s were gone, as you said!! The guy said if you get them before they flower they are around $15 each but he said the guy knows what they will be for the normal run of the mill colours. He said they can have about 2000 people through buying them each year apart from what they sell to the nursery’s and goes down to the royal show. Next year!!

  2. OK – so that’s what they are called. There you go. We have several of these that were gifted that we planted ‘up the back’ in the leafy shaded part of the yard and every year they flower and add a touch of colour. Tonight I’ll be able to tell Mr Tiffin what they are called. We are *such* gardeners! lol

    • Hi Fi. They are great plant for non gardeners. There are only a few rules: No direct sun, keep the snails away and not too much water. And fertilise in spring and autumn won’t go astray, otherwise it is sit back and enjoy.

      • No fear of snails where we live! Far too dry. The conditions sound perfect which is why they are thriving. I’ll go up there now and give them a handful of fertiliser. Thanks for the tip.

  3. Absolutely gorgeous Glenda. I have grown a few from seed which I got from a friend but they all only have 2 and 4 leaves so far so nowhere near producing flowers.
    Have a wonderful and happy week ahead.
