@jeatacake mines about 8yrs old Jeff in a pot roots are very well established the runners broke through pot last year, shame your not closer as can easily be split it gets that full in its pot, you could have had some no way would this one die 🙄
@linfoster they are awful if they are in a border took me 2 years to eventually get them all out of front border, since then its been kept in a big pot as I love the plant for autumn but not the roots for a border you did right thing 😃
Love these, my 1st one disappeared into the ground and never came back, got one from Mozzers this summer (put in a large pot this time instead) and this one's gone too?? Don't know if they're being eaten or I'm doing something wrong?? Any tips?
@Jasonsparkes1 didn't think these would be easy to kill off roots are runners this is that strong it is now in its 3rd pot I have to cut off roots at bottom every couple of years 🙄 mine is about 6 years old though was just split from one of mums plants, not sure what you could be doing Jason its a mystery 🤔
I've mine planted in the South facing bed in a sheltered position it was wondering if after they've finished fruiting (fair few green lanterns on it) should I wrap in a fleece or dig it up to pot and place it in the greenhouse? @Keely
I have not tried them. Lol. I was hoping you had. I have seen that you can use to make sauce, as you would maybe a pasta sauce. They look, to me like they would be more like tiny tomatillos. Hmmm...🤔... Now I'm really intrigued.
@hayleyaj keep it in a pot if you are putting in garden roots are runners and a nightmare to dig out!! You can bury pot, shame you aren't closer I'm going to split this one next year as its too big for its pot its over flowing!! 😕
Hi Ann @farmora yes easy to grow but invasive so i keep mine in a pot buried in soil, took it out this year as once its finished it needs splitting as too big for pot so will reduce it ready for next year, its about 5' high this year 😊
@debs69 yes very but are runners so this is buried in a pot in the ground as I had it in the front originally and it spread all over so lesson learnt, loads of lanterns on it its thrived this year with all the rain
