Pam, if you want some you can surely have some - how best to send it? Should I take a cutting, grow it on and then send it once it has taken?

I don't want your firstborn, thanks ... ;)

Hmmm :-? I'm not sure! I did buy a batch of cuttings on Ebay a couple of months ago, and they're doing fine, but with us coming into the more humid weather, it may be a good idea - in the meantime, we'll talk!

Thankyou SO much!!! :D :D

No probs - I'll try to get some cuttings started this weekend. Not even I could screw up an ivy geranium cutting ... surely ... LOL

ladies, how long would it take for cuttings to become a flowering plant of any size?
and is there a particular season i need to do this in, or all-year around?

Very hardy, cut take a piece and stick it into a pot and away you go, usually 12 months to get a good sized plant.
