HI Cindy

Thanks for writing, I wasnt sure when the best time to cut them was. Doesnt hurt to ask and atleast now I know. :)

Hi gang,

Brommon is absolutely correct. While mine don't usually bloom 'til late Nov., I start their forced dark evenings at the end of Oct. (& just now gave 'em a good gulp of fertilizer to get started).

Tamlamb, you're also right, never hurts to ask (& often the reading audience learns something too).

i still have a couple of cuttings left of mine if youre interested. has to prune a large one as it was falling over from being too side-heavy. may not have been the best time, but shame to waste the cuttings. lmk if you want one
