Clivia



I am finding Clivia more and more appealing with every passing year. At present, plants from Chinese, Japanese, Australian, American and South African breeders are all appearing on the market, and the genus is developing in leaps and bounds. I have a few plants, and I am buying seed from the best breeders as it becomes available, so with luck there will be some good seedlings coming up!

2017
Plants have been growing well, but I have had a problem with thefts from the greenhouse, and the Clivia have been particularly badly hit. I can't be here all the time and although I locked the doors for a while it is really irritating to pop out to the greenhouse and then realise I have forgotten the key. I'm sure it's only bored kids during the school holidays and they will grow out of it. Hopefully my losses mark the enthusiasm of a new generation of young people for growing plants.

2018
Has thrown up a new setback. A mild winter was followed by a weeks freeze at the end of February. Temperatures in the greenhouse dropped to minus 4C and a number of the plants have turned to mush. Naturally it is the most interesting and well-developed specimens that have been hardest hit. The Chinese seedlings are looking very sad and the less usual species have suffered. There is a chance that they will regrow slowly from the base. It will be easier to judge their chances once I have cleaned them up but I am going to wait for a week or two. Prompt action might be a better response, but I don't have the heart to face it at present.
