This one is about 5ft tall Gee....I couldn't believe the small pot, but it looks quite happy squeezed in there!

I've seen people wearing those there Amy...now I know why!...Lol

Just imagine it out of that pot Milky.....it must be like wearing winkle-pickers...:o)

Yours sounds like my £1.99 baby Dd....but we'll enjoy seeing them grow...

I bet it costs the earth Holly the ones for sale on the right of this page are £100, they really are very beautiful though and when you think of what else you'd pay £100 for....not even 2 trips to Tesco......well its worth bread and cheese for a week....Lol!
