    Pruning Christmas Box

    Ah I get you...to encourage roots to grow from the length of the stem. I think I may have done this accidentally with other plants in the past.

    My spider plant is having babies AND flowering!

    I was forever repotting mine. I brought it home from work where it was really struggling. It had been left by an ex-colleague. I put it on a south-facing windowsill and it went nuts!

    Decidious azaleas?

    Azaleas can be deciduous or evergreen. I have both here. An important factor in growing azaleas in pots is not to mulch too heavily. A soil based ericaceous compost too is important. :)
