I don't know if any of you remember the Christmas Cactus cuttings we took last November? At the time I said I would keep you updated on their progress. It wasn't the best time of year to be taking cuttings which is why progress has been slow and therefore not a lot to report. Anyway that all changed the other day when I tapped out the pot and discovered that the cuttings had finally rooted. Below are a couple of pictures I took of the happy event. Also below is a link to the original post I did just in case you either need a reminder or check it out to do your own cuttings.


Monday 24th February 1992.

Vicki went in to Harrogate with Pearl and Vera to meet Ruth and her mother who then came back to dinner. Monday is not a good day to have visitors. Most days here leaves ones mind in shreds but Mondays are even worse. This is the first job I've had where I've suffered from Monday morning blues.

Ruth is a long time friend of Vicki's.

That's so cool, I never have luck with cuttings. I think I am too impatient.

I did rescue a Christmas Cactus from someone's yard waste a couple of weeks ago. I'm trying to nurse it back to health. I'm also not sure what kind of container to put it in.
