Always loved to potter in the garden but only really in the last couple of years, have I embraced it by redesigning our space and growing from seed

No Leslie, these are my bug and fly catchers in the greenhouse, started with one and divided so now have 3. I will be planting 2 out this year though. Near the 2 seating areas to manage flies. 😄 @lesliecole49

In the right soil..which is quite sandy for these, stand in rain water they do get big! They do me well in the greenhouse. 1 needs dividing again so maybe 4 in the next few weeks! 😄 @lesliecole49

I think it was hungry as not much food source around this time of year Celina, so it took what it could get! 😂 @cee

They are very hardy! In the UK they would also survive our winters. But I use them in the greenhouse to control flies during summer etc. But I love them, the flowers are beautiful too @dirtgirlworld

Oh that's a good idea! I take it it thrives in the greenhouse then? 😊

It does Tara, although they are hardy. But I bought it 2 years ago specifically to look after the greenhouse 😁 @Tara_H

Nice! I keep mine in the kitchen but I've just divided it and assuming the offspring does ok, you've given me the idea to keep it in the potting shed!
