She's flowering like mad now and looking really good. I'm sure I could do with another one of these 😊😊💕💕💜💜

@jeatacake You ought to Jeff. When I bought this a while ago it was nowhere near this big. And the good thing is with them, I've found, is mine flowers throughout the year. Then when spring comes they ramp up on new flowers. Amazing plant! 💜💜

@lilybee When I checked ingredients I was short of some key things. I'm going shopping tomorrow to get what I need. I need cat biscuits too. I better make a list 💕💕

@pelly Yet again I say, now why didn't I think of that?🤔I saw some little ones today that looked good but the price wasn't at £8.99 no way am I paying that. I saw some red ones too. Got to have a red one!😊😊♥️♥️

Yes, I saw some today, I think they were about the same price 👍

@pelly I think they're worth it because mine is still in flower now and throughout last year. I just thought I could get them cheaper elsewhere. I like more for my money and who doesn't 😊😊🌸🌸

I'm surprised there's still some flower with this. Just a few but it's having a longer life than its usual up to September flowering period. I can't remember the name of the shrub next to it but it's a lovely Autumn gold ☺☺💜💜
