There is a bit of a Ta Dah! moment going gone in my sitting room at the moment. Although it is still pretty chilly outside, I don’t think I will be having any more fires and to celebrate I have gathered some of my flowering houseplants together on the wood-burner. Apart from the orchids, I have grown all of them from cuttings which is immensely satisfying. But it is the kalanchoes I’m particularly pleased with as they have not flowered for about 3-4 years and I was considering throwing them out when last November I noticed some buds forming – patience rewarded! And now they are really putting on a show!
