Yay! It’s a great sight, I’ve got one desperately hanging on for dear life after the bottom of the stem snapped a bit. Might not make the full flower but I’m desperate to see if it will 😄

Fantastic 👌 I have one of these but it's never flowered. It barely survives winter!

We have been coming to piano lessons for 2 and a half years and this is the first time I've seen it flower @jeatacake fingers crossed yours will flower soon

Thank you 😊 I hoped it would last summer with the hot weather we had. I certainly didn't think they flowered so early in the year though!

I'm sure it wasn't there last week @jeatacake it may still flower yet I'm on the south coast and it's in a very sheltered spot

It will be different to up here. I was in Devon 3 weeks ago & it was almost tropical in comparison! 😀

It was beautiful here 3 weeks ago, still warm but overcast at the moment plants seem to be further along than normal @jeatacake
