Keeping myself sane while healing is driving me batty Buwahahaha 🤣😂😜 but I was outside sitting down just taking it all in all the hard work I've done and what I wish I could do. And watching the #butterflies #flittering around and #layingeggs is relaxing.

Love these trees, I don’t think I could ever grow one in my garden, would be too big. There’s a lovely one at my favourite garden south of London. It’s obviously liking where you’ve got it right now 😀

Lol as soon as i get some dirt im just going to leave the much its in all around it and let it keep growing in this container till outgrows it. Thanks @richard.spicer.7906 they are pretty cool trees with huge leaves when they get older. The tree i got these seeds from leaves were bigger than my head lol

@tkept their flowers smell amazing. Messy tree though, so I always pull the beans off. If you find you'd like it, I'll try to save some seeds this year if it survived our winter.

I wonder how long they take to grow. I think mine won't make it through the winter. Probably pot bound now.

This hasn't even been a year for this one so not for sure but will look that up in a bit. @jennlamaye up it's pot size if you have a garage just put it in there maybe with a light and space heater lol
