Morning lovelies and thank you 😊 @pelly @nessas @juliesgarden and @Jasonsparkes1 - that's a shame Jason as I don't have brilliant soil and they are stuffed in the over crowed dry border so it may be the drought conditions they like?

@jasonsparkes1 maybe try a pot next year so it can dry out.. but Some things just suit different areas.. like your amazing Bears Breeches! Sounds like something you'd wear 😂😂

I made the mistake of finding out just how spikey they are at a garden centre the other day! Ouch! 😆 ... Stunning plant though!

Oh yes @jinxjen we had them for my daughter's wedding flowers and was constantly being spiked by her bouquet 😂 but as you say worth it!
