St Helens (zone 9a) I grow flowers, fruit & veg in some great clay soil here. Prefer the exotic & unusual & to share tips, ideas, seeds etc.

They look wonderful! I saw some at Morrisons but because I wasn't sure where I'd put them I didn't get them. I don't think they looked as nice as yours do. Are they gyo or did you buy them?@jeatacake 😊😊

Thanks Chris 😊 I bought this a few years ago. Only small when I got it, but it's grown quite a bit since then. I may have got this one from Morrisons too? 🤔 @midnightgardener

Thank you Chris 😊 They are herbaceous perennials and die back to the ground each winter, so it's new growth each year, but a bigger plant each time it comes back. It does seem to be happy in clay & more than 50% shade too. Got your email, thanks 👍 Still waiting for some seeds to ripen though. You did want some daturas didn't you? Let me if there's any others 🙂 I know what you mean about being on the pc. I'm not so often on my laptop these days. Mostly use my mobile. @midnightgardener 😊

@harebell I had a sniff of these this morning & I thought they smelt a little strange, unlike anything I've ever smelt before. If anything, like plastic! Not a memorable smell, but not unpleasant either 🤔

Thanks Terri. I'm thinking that it may depend on the colour? @terrimclaughlin
