Re: schefflera

I just have to add that I think if you put some rooting hormone on the
cutting it would take off in some potting soil.
I have done that with all kinds of cuttings... I am sure at least one was a
Good luck,

I had gotten an email advertisement a while ago from a grower who
distinguished between cyclamen and hardy cyclamen - I am sorry I don't
remember the details but they made a big point out of grouping their
cyclamens by hardy and not.  Don't think I still have the email, but it
stuck in my mind because I don't know much about cyclamen except my mom used
to have one as a houseplant in Michigan, and this advertiesment made me
think I might be able to have certain ones outside here.  Yours must be one
of the hardy ones.

Your garden sounds pretty lively, and pretty!  My first narcissus bloomed
today.  Maybe by next week I'll have more color!!
