Hi, I'm sure this will be an easy one but can anyone please help me identify this plant in my garden and give me a little background on how to grow more, ideally from the one I have?

    First I mix 50% grit and compost, then look around the edge of the plant for small shoots that you can peel off. Remove the bottom leaves and the tip. Put these around the edge of a pot (terracotta is better but not essential). Cover the the pot with a polythene bag. Make sure the shoots stay moist and check for roots after a month.

    I struggled at first then suddenly they all started to root.

    You can take the cuttings now.
