@pelly its got to the point i don't have a cane big enough to support it. It's about a foot taller than it. But strangly the second plant is smaller. They are very tall though and it dosent help im only just over 5 foot

Thanks @hkyfvr the seed was given away with the BBC gardeners World magazine. I only brought the magazine beacuse it was doing 2 for 1 entry ticket for lots of gardens open to the public.
