They get big, so give it lots of room 😀👍🏼 I'll tag you in mine.

@sieveheadsarah That's what I'm hoping! I've bought three, potted them up from 9cm pots into 2 litres to grow on over the summer. I'll plant them out separately spaced across the new border in the Autumn. I thought they'd be a good foil for my tulips next Spring and contrast well with the acid green of the euphorbias too.

They'll look amazing @tash74 can't wait to see pics when they're in. I grew mine from seed and only one germinated.

These would have been grown from seed at the nursery too. They have a lovely propagation tunnel with underfloor heating and a misting unit. I used to work there some years ago now. You can still see the seed leaves on my plants and there's a few seedlings in each pot but they have pretty good roots already. Not grown them before! @sieveheadsarah

That's probably why mine weren't that successful, they didn't have warm bottoms 😂😂
