    Many years ago I was told about growing pineapples, so I had a go! I used to slice off the rosette with a few centimeters of the pineapple attached. Then get a plant pot more or less the circumference of the pineapple piece I cut off, and filled it with compost to within a few centimeters of the top. Covered the compost with a thin layer of grit-sand then watered just enough to wet it - don't saturate the compost. I pushed the rosette firmly onto the compost and placed it on the kitchen windowsill. Hey presto, it rooted! So I potted it on. Many more followed!!

  • I am going to give this a go.I do not have a greenhouse/conservatory would it be alright in my living room window.

    i will add this to my to do list :) thank you
  • I did a pineapple last year. It's doing really well but not sure when to feed it. I brought it in over winter but when would be the best time to put it back in the green house?
