Thanks Katy. This is by far the best grower. The others I overwintered are tiny. I have a new one that is tall and lanky. I have to pinch the top off and I hate to do that. 🙀 @gjones

I’ve had to that before but they do recover and tend to thicken out more afterwards. I took a peak at you weather forecast. You have some hot weather for the next few days. Only rain forecast here for three days😕
