When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, aquilegia, paeonies, philadelphus...

All clean and shiny and back inside. If you think you kill #houseplants I challenge you to kill one of these. They are not called Cast Iron Plants for nothing 😂 #houseplant

I agree, mine is back inside now. I have had it for years and it puts up with all sorts of neglect. Didn't know it is also called Cast Iron plant, very appropriate. I only know it as Aspidistra.

You would have to kill it with love Rachel. They thrive on neglect. We've had ours ages too Jennifer, since we were students - though our first was stolen in a burglary. Seriously. Along with a load of Elvis Costello tapes 😂😂 @euphorbia @rachelbrooks

Wonder how much they flogged them for down the pub..?! 🙄🙈😂 I shouldn't laugh...it's not funny being burgled, but what strange things to take!

Don't worry it made us laugh, especially when we had to spell aspidistra for the Bobbie! We claimed it in our insurance. I think we got £1 per leaf!!! 😂😂😂
