@sieveheadsarah Thanks I'm really pleased! Bizarrely these are my leftovers that I wasn't planning to plant! The main ones have shot up the wall but aren't showing any buds yet.

You're lucky that so many of your seeds germinated. I've just been looking through your pics, looks like I've missed seeing lots of them 🤔🤔

I've loved watching these crazy climbers grow. Better plant them out!

Ooh, lucky you, I grew them last year and only 1 plant made it, I tried this year and nothing!! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

@sieveheadsarah they're quite late as they took ages to germinate, in the end put them in the bathroom and that did it! So don't know if I'll get flowers, fingers crossed!

Same here last year, I did get a few flowers, I was really disappointed as the pics you see on Sarah Ravens website they look amazing, maybe growing it in a pot wasn't such a good idea 🤔

Ah that's a shame. I'm hoping I get enough foliage that it's worth it without flowers! I was planning to put it in a large wooden planter may have to rethink! Did your flowers come really late on?

Sorry Katie I've only just seen this as you didn't @ me 😀 yes, the flowers took a long time to come, I'll tag you in my pics from last year 👍🏼

Mine was in a smallish pot, so I think it was stunted a bit 🤔🤔
