Hi there. I'm very new to growing clivias. Where can one get an authorative guide on growing clivias?

I came across a useful site at www.clivia.sa which had plenty of information on the species and their natural conditions. It seems that your Port Elizabeth is a useful place to look for Clivia growers and enthusiasts if you're planning a trip over the summer.

From long ago - your gardening writer Una van der Spuy was always helpful on growing your indigenous plants. Saved this Kiwi from a lot of beginner's errors, at any rate! You might be able to find her books in a secondhand bookshop.

Thank you very much, your response appreciated. I will google Una van der Spuy. I asked this question because I recently bought 3 plants, all of them with seeds on. I was wondering when I should pick them (they are green pods at the moment). Then when and how do I plant them?
