SNAP!!!

Yes, Tt - they do. My plant is about 4 years old now. I shall have to take cuttings, as they are short-lived, they go woody.

You go right ahead Spritz, thought i would poke my nose on again this morning for half hour..... so be quick or you'll miss me lol.. and yes Spritz is quite right, i take quite a lot of cuttings off these for ebay anyway, and they are really easy to do, it is just a case of pulling off a healthy shoot and sticking it in compost...also you can do this with the side shoots of spray carnation that you get from the flower shop! but i find these plants tend to go leggy very quickly...but these little pinks are lovely...i have just stocked out my mums garden with cuttings taken this year.

I don't bother with the side-shoots from the bunches of spray carnations any longer, you're right - they just get leggy.
